Grocery Clerk Accused Of Stealing From Customer

A January 3rd court date has been set for a Cookeville grocery store employee, accused of stealing a wallet from one of the store's customers.  Police say 27-year-old Brian Paul Sherman of South Walnut Avenue was charged after the incident on Monday night at the Food Lion store on West Jackson Street. According to police reports, a shopper accidentally left her wallet in a shopping cart after purchasing some groceries. She later returned to the store, but was unable to locate the wallet.  Police say it was video from the store's surveillance cameras that revealed Sherman apparently taking it, and they say he later allegedly admitted to the theft.  Police recovered the stolen wallet in a dumpster where he had discarded it.
