Shoplifting Citation Issued Against Cookeville Man

Police say a man who opened a soft drink bottle and drank out of it without paying for the soda has been cited for shoplifting.  But authorities say that's not all the suspect -- identified as 26-year-old Robert Michael Robinson of Penthouse Road -- did while he was inside the Hill's IGA store this week. Store employees claim Robinson also opened an 18 ounce can of Drano and a box of Ziploc baggies. He then emptied the Drano into the baggies before being confronted by store employees.  He apparently gave no explanation for the behavior, and goes to court on the charge November 22nd.
