Hopkinsville Police have arrested the man they say is responsible for the recent major thefts at Wal-Mart.
The arrest card for 27-year old Donald Edwin Ash of Clarksville says he was interviewed yesterday and admitted to being the person who removed 33 pieces of jewelry from an unlocked display case Wednesday morning and being the person who put two laptop computers under his coat and walked out of the store.
The two burglaries included merchandise with a combined value of 75-hundred dollars. The suspect’s girlfriend, 35-year old Leanna Faulkner of Oak Grove, was cited into court later in the day on theft charges after police executed a search warrant on her residence and found some of the stolen items and found evidence that led them to believe Ash was staying with her and that she had knowledge of the incidents.
Ash was arrested and charged with three counts of felony theft.
