Police: Couple Left Evidence Behind Linking Them To Thefts

Posted:

GALLATIN, Tenn. - Police said they arrested two people in a string of thefts after one of the suspect's literally left his identification behind.

20-year-old Dustin Matthew Marshall and 19-year-old Lindsey Samantha Scholl were arrested and charged with charged with burglary, three counts of theft from a motor vehicle, two counts of theft under $500 and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Police said they were able to identify the pair as suspects in a string of thefts since October 14 after Marshall allegedly stole a pair of jeans and left his old jeans, containing his wallet with his driver's license inside, behind in the dressing room at Walmart.

On Saturday night, police said the suspects fled the Longhorn Steakhouse in Gallatin without paying for their meal and left behind evidence behind that linked them to one of the auto burglaries.

Officers later located the pair outside their home on East Prince Street and subsequently obtained a search warrant which produced evidence connected the suspects to the remaining auto burglaries and a burglary at the Christian Towers Apartments.

Both Marshall and Scholl were arrested and booked into the Sumner County Jail.
