Shoplifting is a Costly Problem in Rutherford County

  Email   Print

22-pieces of clothing have been stolen from the JC Penny store. The loss prevention officer called the M-P-D after he stopped and detained a woman as she walked past all points of purchase with the merchandise valued at over $500.

The woman was arrested and charged with theft over $500.

Unfortunately, this story is all too familiar. While we are not seeing a huge increase in shoplifting, WGNS has noted a significant increase in the amount of merchandise that is being stolen per person. In other words, the number of people being arrested for shoplifting is not going up, but the amount of things they are stealing is increasing.
