Police Cite Five People For Shoplifting
Shoplifting citations have been issued against five Cookeville area residents involved in allegedly trying to steal from several local stores. According to police reports, 25-year-old Danny Buck of Bloomington Springs tried to take a pair of work boots from the Walmart store; 40-year-old Kristi Gail Clinton tried to steal a pair of boots from JC Penney; and 23-year-old Janna Nichols of Cookeville tried to steal shirts and other clothing from JC Penney. Meanwhile, in a separate case, police charged 23-year-old Roger Lynn Bumbalough of Kacie Avenue and 34-year-old Coreene Fitzsimmons of Spurlock Hollow Road after the two allegedly went through Walmart and picked out identical products to the ones purchased by an apparent accomplice. Store officials say the accomplice paid for her items and then gave the receipt to the couple, who then attempted to leave the store by claiming to have already paid for their stuff.
