GALLATIN, Tenn. — Police said the evidence that led them to a theft suspect was right behind him.
Officers said 20-year-old Dustin Matthew Marshall tried on a new pair of jeans at a Walmart and left without paying for them. WSMV-TV reported employees found Marshall's old jeans in a dressing room — his wallet still in them, his dricer license inside it.
Police caught up with Marshall and 19-year-old Lindsey Samantha Scholl on Saturday night after a couple fled a Longhorn Steakhouse without paying their bill.
A search of their home turned up evidence of auto burglaries and an apartment break-in, police said.
Marshall and Scholl were booked into the Sumner County Jail on burglary, three counts of theft from a motor vehicle, two counts of theft under $500 and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Court officials said Tuesday that neither has an attorney.
