Two women were charged with shoplifting after trying to return items they had not purchased from a store in the Providence shopping center of Mt. Juliet.
The arrests happened Sunday afternoon. The suspects were identified as 26-year-old Victoria Summers from Nashville and 29-year-old Khaliah Gray from Madison.
Officials with the Mt. Juliet Police Department said Summers and Madison walked into the Best Buy and said they wanted to return a GPS unit and a Fitbit.
Workers placed return stickers on those items. However, investigators said the women removed the stickers and placed them on much more expensive merchandise, including an Xbox One and NeatConnect Premium.
The items were valued at $849, much higher than the items originally taken into the store. It was not clear if workers gave the women any money.
Officials said a police officer saw their car as the women were driving away and made a vehicle stop. Summers and Gray were identified as the suspects.
The officer also found active warrants out of Williamson and Davidson Counties for the arrest of Summers. She was wanted for felony theft and probation violation. Summers was also apparently driving on a revoked driver’s license.
Both women were taken into custody and booked into the Wilson County Jail. Summer was charged with shoplifting and second offense driving on a revoked license.
Gray was charged with shoplifting.
Information about bond was not available.
