Mike Fitzhugh is officially the new Rutherford County Sheriff. After being voted in by the Rutherford County Commission last Thursday and sworn in after the meeting, he received his bond at 12:01am Monday morning.
The alleged beer thief was caught, but not arrested. George Lee was issued a citation and told not to come back to the Kroger Store on Lascassas Pike this past Sunday after allegedly stealing a large number of brews. Lee is accused of filling a shopping cart with 120-cans of beer and walking out of the store. In case you’re trying to do the math, that’s ten 12-packs of beer… Bud Light beer to be specific. The man was caught as he was leaving the store.
The theft was valued at less than $500, therefore a simple citation for theft under $500 was issued. Lee was trespassed from the store on Lascassas Pike, which means he cannot return for grocery shopping in the foreseeable future.
