31-year-old Kendell Burton was arrested walking out the door of a Mt. Juliet Kroger Monday, after police say she was observed using the self-checkout to bag and steal items she didn’t pay for.
A loss prevention officer from the South Mt. Juliet Road Kroger observed known shoplifter Kendell Burton in the store on April 29th, as Burton was using the self-checkout to bag multiple items, and only pay for a few things on April 29th. Mt. Juliet Police responded quickly, and were waiting outside to detain her as she exited the store, which they did without issue.
A review showed that she bagged a total of $40.64 in merchandise that she failed to pay for before exiting the store. Kendell Burton was booked into the Wilson County Jail, and charged with theft of merchandise. She posted a $1,000 bond via Smiley Bail Bonds, and is scheduled to appear in court in July.
