Four Nashville residents are accused of driving to Clarksville to shop lift thousands of dollars worth of merchandise from businesses.
Clarksville Police say the suspects were quickly located driving in a vehicle on I-24 after they committed the thefts and that officers initially responded to a shoplifting call at Governor’s Square Mall.
Police say inside the vehicle was over $3300 worth of stolen merchandise from different merchants and that a majority of the items still retained the anti-theft devices used to deter theft.
Police say bags and tools used for the sole purpose of defeating the security systems were also located inside the vehicle.
The following people were arrested in connection to the case; 23-year old Adrieanna Johnson, 23-year old Tawonda Parrish, 18-year old Rico Brown and 20-year old Shelby Cange.
This is still an on-going investigation and police say more charges are pending.
The police department holds monthly Area Law Enforcement & Retailers Team meetings where attendees all share information involving organized shoplifting rings as well as repeat offenders.
The meeting is held at the La Quinta Inn on Holiday Drive every second Wednesday of the month at 10:00 am. and all merchants are invited to attend.
