Man Cited For Stuffing Video Games Down His Pants
A Knoxville man and his alleged accomplice have both been cited for shoplifting in Cookeville after officials at Sears claim they saw the man shoving Playstation video games into his cargo shorts. Authorities say 27-year-old Randall Brent Allen was arrested as he tried to leave the store without paying for the games. Security officers allegedly observed Allen place four games into the pockets of his cargo shorts and then witnessed 27-year-old Amie Jo Price of Darwin Street in Cookeville allegedly take three more games, which she handed to Allen. According to the report, Allen then placed those games down the front of his shorts. Both were cited for shoplifting and told they could not be back in the store. Police say Price was charged because she allegedly assisted Allen in shoplifting the games. Meanwhile, police are reviewing video evidence of a shoplifter who ran from the Smoke Station store on W. Jackson St. after being confronted by a clerk. The "heavy-set" female reportedly put two packages of tobacco in the waist band under her shirt and did not pay for them.
