The cost of vacuum cleaners and men’s razor blades are going up. If you are trying to figure out how the two go together, they don’t.
In two separate shoplifting incidents reported at the Walmart store on South Rutherford Boulevard in Murfreesboro, over $200 in Gillette razor blades were stolen along with a $290 Dyson vacuum cleaner.
In the razor incident, a man entered the store and headed to the toiletries. The subject then searched out the razors and grabbed a total of six eight packs before leaving. The man walked out of the store without paying. He was caught and issued a misdemeanor citation.
The vacuum incident was almost a clean getaway, but police were able to sweep the suspect up before he made it to his car. The suspect was arrested as opposed to only receiving a citation because he was wanted on an unrelated warrant.
