A man who is considered to be a “Person of Interest” in a recent shoplifting case was caught on camera.

Murfreesboro Police report an unidentified man entered the Lowe's Store on Old Fort Parkway on February 8th and loaded up a shopping cart with lawn care items. The culprit then left the store without paying for the merchandise. It is believed that the man left the hardware store in a blue Ford F-150.

In an unrelated incident, Murfreesboro Detectives are trying to locate at least three people who may be tied to a “Cash Card Scam.”

This past Sunday (March 6, 2022), three individuals approached the same cashier at Walgreens on Northfield Blvd around 9 p.m. Each of the three persons purchased five $500 gift cards and several miscellaneous items, according to the MPD.

When the purchases were made, authorities say the three customers convinced the cashier to enter the transactions manually, rather than swiping the cards.

In total, the Walgreens was scammed out of $2,533.35.
