A burning cross, a Smith county man beaten and shot by a family member, and in critical condition. We are told this is much more than a family feud, and outraged family members are calling it a "hate crime."
the past few months, there have been 17 different reports of people stealing
from the Bowling Green Walmart.
say what the thieves are doing with the stolen items is shedding light on a
bigger problem. They say drug dealers are requesting people steal hundreds of
dollars in big-ticket items, and exchanging them for drugs – specifically heroin.
some cases, they were exchanging the items they would shoplift for either cash
or cash cards, or those types of things, and then exchanging those gift cards
for drugs," explained Lt. Brad Biller of the Bowling Green Police.
shoplifters are bypassing security cameras and leaving out of side entrances
with the merchandise.
say the shoplifting has gotten so bad they've started charging repeat offenders
with burglary – a felony – instead of petty theft.
of right now, they don't know how many of those shoplifters are using the items
to get drugs.
