Amazon reported a sizable theft in recent days. An employee at the Murfreesboro site on Joe B. Jackson Parkway allegedly stole several thousand dollars' worth of electronics and sold them on Ebay. A loss prevention worker was able to track the stolen items down which is what led to the report.
Suspect Stephen Holder wrote out a statement admitting to the theft. Police say that Holder informed them that he had been stealing from Amazon since April of 2015 and would conceal items inside his wallet, his pants or his shoes and then exit the building.
Some of the merchandise was found in his vehicle, other merchandise had already been sold via Ebay.
At this time, the estimated loss totals about $9,000. The case against Holder has been labeled as a "Theft over $1,000."
