Missing Teen Arrested With Man For Shoplifting At Rivergate Mall

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A teenager reported missing in Oklahoma was caught shoplifting with a 20-year-old man at Rivergate Mall.

A police affidavit said a security guard at Dillard's stopped the couple when they walked out of the store with five pairs of jeans, and the man, identified as Tyler Tomlinson, was also wearing a pair of stolen jeans.

Police learned Tomlinson and the girl had arrived from Oklahoma in a stolen truck. When officers went to it in the parking lot, they found three more pairs of stolen jeans. In total, the stolen jeans were worth more than $1,000.

Police said the teen had been reported as a runaway by her parents on August 1, and Tomlinson had checked out the truck from a U-haul store in Oklahama City the same day, and hadn't returned it. An affidavit said he had attempted to remove the decals, and spray painted over where they had been.

Tomlinson was charged with two counts of theft and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. His bond was set at $47,500.
