Court Date Set For Serial Shoplifter

A Putnam County man will be back in court on January 24th after being accused four times in less than a month of shoplifting from various stores in Cookeville. Police say the most recent allegation against 44-year-old James Glenn Whittenburg of Thomas Road involves an attempt to steal two shirts from the Kohl's store.  The shirts were valued at $74. Police say Whittenburg was also cited for stealing $77 worth of tools from K-Mart, an incident which they say was captured on a security video.  According to police, as of last week, Whittenburg had been arrested for shoplifting on four occasions since the beginning of the month.
