Alleged Shoe Polish Thief Caught By Store Workers

Cookeville police say a 22-year-old Lee Avenue resident has been charged with theft of property, after allegedly trying to leave the Hill's IGA last week without paying for a bottle of white shoe polish. Offier Mitch Harrington says Joshua Lee Boyer was detained by three employees who had to hold him down on the floor until police arrived. Police say Boyer was also due to serve 19 days in jail on a previous charge. The shoe polish was valued at $3.89.
