Photos Released by the Murfreesboro Police Department

MURFREESBORO, TN - Logging onto your favorite social media page and seeing a photo of your son or daughter is typically not a bad thing. But, that all changes if it's a security camera photo that's been released by the local police department suggesting your child is being labeled a “Person of Interest” in a crime. Arguably, such a scenario could be one of the top three items on the list of “Every Parent's Worst Nightmare.


In this story, Murfreesboro Police report a man visiting Old Fort Park to play a wholesome game of tennis, realized his credit card had been lifted after receiving a call from his credit card company. That call let the victim know that his card or cards were being used at Lowe's and Target in the Sam Ridley Parkway area of Smyrna. Police say the incident happened this past month.

After receiving the initial call, the victim went to his van to confirm that someone had indeed stolen his credit cards from his wallet, along with a handful of cash. The unknown thief or thieves charged thousands of dollars at the two Smyrna stores, according to the MPD. However, police don't have any names to file a warrant or to make an arrest, which is why the MPD released photos of the subjects who checked out around the same time that the victims credit card or cards were used. Those photos contain what police are calling "Persons of Interest." 

Murfreesboro Detectives are trying to track down the people responsible for the theft and for the big spending spree. The MPD asks, “If you know the persons of interest in the photos, please give Detective Aaron Gonzalez a call at 629-201-5638.
