Reported losses in excess of $10,000 at Cash Savers in Nashville has resulted in charges against 11 employees and customers, according to Cash Savers district manager Tim Allen.
In early October, Allen filed a report with the Nashville Police Department in reference to thefts at the store. He reported several employees and customers (friends and family of employees) had been stealing or receiving free merchandise from his store for the past several months.
Allen provided security camera footage from August to October that reportedly showed employees “skip scanning, as well as voiding out transactions for unpaid merchandise,” according to information from NPD Chief Amy Marion.
Allen reported losses in excess of $10,000 at the Nashville store.
The following suspects were arrested and charged last week with theft of property or theft by receiving:
Patricia Erby, 41, of Nashville, employee, felony
Monica Butcher, 44, of Murfreesboro, employee, felony
Stephanie Ramirez, 36, of Nashville, employee, felony
Mandy Day, 44, of Mineral Springs, employee, felony
Lequisha Threats, 44, of Nashville, customer, felony
Corbin Tripp, 21, of Nashville, employee, misdemeanor
Felicity Green, 23, of Nashville, employee, misdemeanor
Jerry Threats, 45, of Nashville, employee, misdemeanor
Kristina Johnson, 26, of Mineral Springs, customer, misdemeanor
Tina Hill, 58, of Ozan, customer, misdemeanor
Lesley Maroon, 44, of Nashville, customer, misdemeanor
Allen said the store employees involved were suspended when the thefts were revealed and their employment terminated once the police investigation began.
Allen reported that the exact same thing happened over the summer at the Prescott Cash Savers with employees and customers taking an estimated $25,000 and resulted in numerous felony and misdemeanor convictions.
“People need to be aware that if I’m investigating an employee theft and I see you on security footage accepting free groceries, we will pursue theft by receiving charges against you,” Allen noted.
Cash Savers also has a location in Murfreesboro.
