An aggravated robbery occurred over an incident that started out as a simple shoplifting case.
An assistant manager at Sports Seasons next to Marshall’s in Murfreesboro, called police after a man entered the store and allegedly took a pair of shorts. An incident report obtained by WGNS on Tuesday shows that the suspect stuffed the shorts down his pants.
The employee followed the suspected thief outside where he witnessed the man get into a white Lincoln. Once at the door of the car, the gold toothed subject took a handgun out of the glove box and laid it on his lap as he sat in the passenger seat. The suspect then stated to the assistant manager, “You don’t want these problems,” according to the report. The driver of the vehicle then stepped on the gas and drove away.
The worker at the store was able to write down the tag number, which returned to an address in Madison, Tennessee. A “Be on the lookout” was issued, but the driver got away. At this point, an arrest has not been made.
