MURFREESBORO, TN – Murfreesboro Police continue to investigate a color coordinated duo accused of stealing more than $1,400 worth of goods during a recent shopping expedition, that apparently didn’t require cash. Two subjects entered Bath & Body Works off Medical Center Parkway in the Avenue and began browsing the lovely scents of lotions, soaps and candles. Evidently, the smells were so enticing, they couldn’t help themselves and picked out a few goodies. Their shopping basket quickly filled to the rim, holding what one store employee calculated to equal over $1,000 worth of scented goods, mainly candles.
Apparently, one culprit was wearing a black top accented with a gray hat, while the other wore a black shirt and with what appeared to be gray stretch-pants. The duo allegedly decided their hand selected goods were much too expensive for their wallets to spare and reportedly left with their basket of goodies in hand, not paying for the merchandise. Once in the parking lot of The Avenue, they jumped into what may have been a gray Dodge Avenger, that coincidently matched their gray pants. The two sped away before a worker could write down their license plate number.
In at least one theft from the Murfreesboro retailer, the store manager told police the couple may be the same suspects tied to a prior incident that occurred at a Nashville store. In that case, a similar looking couple were arrested after a theft in Davidson County. So far, an arrest has not been made in the Murfreesboro theft and the May 3rd case is still open.
On a brighter note, because the two got away with more than $1,000 in candles, they will have enough wax and wicks to light-up a small mansion. Plus, it will make the residence smell great! If you know these individuals, the MPD is asking that you contact Detective Ray Worden at 629-201-5637 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
