Mt. Juliet, Tenn. – Detectives are looking to identify three suspects that worked together to distract employees and steal cash from a local wine and spirits store. On Saturday, June 11, 2016, officers were summoned to Mt. Juliet Wine and Spirits, located at 11344 Lebanon Road, to investigate a theft that had just occurred around 4:45 p.m. It appears that three men executed a well-planned theft, distracting employees, to steal the store’s cash within minutes.
Further investigation and a review of surveillance video, revealed all three suspects entered and exited the store at different times. Two of the suspects distracted both of the employees while the third suspect entered the back office and stole an undisclosed amount of cash.
The store’s high-quality surveillance system captured the suspects’ actions. Detectives hope someone in the community will recognize the suspects so they can be apprehended.
