The plastic tote that was reportedly stolen from a Murfreesboro Walmart store was mainly filled with cold weather items, according to police.
21-Year old Jermonteze Harrison who is homeless, was evidently collecting cold weather gear to brave the cold nights in Rutherford County when he was caught shoplifting at the South Rutherford Blvd. discount store on Sunday night. The report that WGNS obtained on Tuesday showed that Harrison had gathered over $500 in merchandise and then attempted to leave the store without paying for it.
The homeless man, who is originally from Nashville, was wanted in Nashville for multiple warrants. He was taken to the Rutherford County Adult Detention Center where he is being held for Davidson County authorities. He was served several outstanding warrants and charged locally with theft.
