Mt. Juliet, Tenn. – Two shoplifting suspects were apprehended yesterday after they attempted to return items they did not purchase. On Sunday, December 27, 2015 around 2:40 p.m., officers were summoned to Best Buy, located at 401 S. Mt. Juliet Road, after vigilant loss prevention staff observed two suspects place return stickers on merchandise they just selected off the shelf.
The suspects originally entered Best Buy and acted as if they were going to return a GPS and Fitbit, which staff then placed return stickers on those items. After obtaining the return stickers, the suspects removed the stickers and placed them on pricier merchandise, which was a Xbox One and NeatConnect Premium. Taking the pricier merchandise to customer service, the suspects attempted to return those items. Together, the suspects attempted to return $849.00 in items they did not purchase.
As the suspects were driving away from Best Buy, a quick responding Mt. Juliet police officer spotted their car and stopped them.

Further investigation revealed that Summers had active arrest warrants out of Williamson County for Felony Theft and Davidson County for a Probation Violation.
