Mt. Juliet, Tenn. – Investigators are hoping someone can identify two shoplifting suspects that stole toothpaste and pain medication from Kroger. On Tuesday, July 14, 2015 around 7:40 p.m., a man and woman entered Kroger in Providence Marketplace to steal items.
The male suspect went over to the bottles of Aleve pain medication and scooped all the bottles into his hand-basket. He then continued to place more pain medication bottles into his pockets. While the male suspect was stealing, the female suspect was doing the same. She went over to the toothpaste aisle and placed a bunch of Poligrip denture adhesive cream into her purse. They both walked out of the store with over $500.00 in stolen merchandise.
The suspects drove away in what is believed to be a silver 2004 Ford F-150 4-door truck. It is believed that the suspects could reside in the Hamilton County, Chattanooga, TN area, and they are possible suspects in other area shopliftings in cities along Middle-Tennessee interstates.
Investigators hope someone in the community will recognize the suspects from the surveillance video so they can be apprehended.
If anyone has a feeling that they possibly know the suspects responsible for this crime, they are encouraged to call the Mt. Juliet Police Department at (615) 754-2550. Information can also be given anonymously by calling (615) 754-TIPS (8477) or via the Mt. Juliet Police Department website at http://www.mjpd.org/ .
