Police Search For Suspect Who Stole From Wildhorse Saloon


NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Someone posing as a photographer stole an expensive video camera from the Wildhorse Saloon, and the crime was caught on camera.

The crime happened on March 31 on a Tuesday night. Police said the suspect was sitting at the bar talking with the Wildhorse Saloon manager. He told people he was a professional photographer.

"It shows this person up close, shows tattoos that he has on his left arm, shows his clothing, very good facial features," said James Vivrette, Metro police department.

At one point a security guard found him back stage handling a Wildhorse video camera. He was told to leave and go back to the customer area.

"It appears he's kind of scoping the place out. He's looking for an opportunity, looking for something that's not being watched carefully," said Vivrette.

Police are not sure if the suspect left the building, but at 1 a.m. the alarm on the backdoor went off. The suspect walked past a Wildhorse employee and said he'd left his video camera.

"Goes up to the stage and takes a large Panasonic video camera. It's like the ones you see media use out on their scenes," said Vivrette.

The thief took the camera and left the building. Police believe the suspect intended to sell it.

"This is something that you would go to like maybe a school and try to sell if he's a student, ebay, Craig's List," said Vivrette.
