28-year-old Nettisia Lashay Mitchell & 32-year-old Adreana Johnson are both charged with possession of shoplifting tools to interfere with anti-theft security devices after alert employees noted they were acting ‘suspicious at Dick’s Sporting Goods and attempted to take cover a nearby T.J. Maxx in Mt. Juliet.
On February 1st, Mount Juliet Police officer Alecia Martin responded to a call at Dick’s Sporting Goods located at 401 South Mount Juliet Road for suspicious people. One of the employees of the store believed that the individuals were going to leave with carts full of merchandise. The pair were later identified as Nettisia Lashay Mitchell and Adreana Johnson. Officer Martin waited to see if they would exit the store with the merchandise, but feeling something was ‘off’, the pair exited and went into a nearby T.J. Maxx store where they were confronted.
According to arrest warrants, both women had multiple purses on them, altogether containing 3 magnets, wire cutters, and 3 spanner screwdrivers, which Johnson admitted were used as ‘tag pullers’. A search of the vehicle they arrived in netted even more magnets and spanner screwdrivers inside.
On February 1st, Nettisia Lashay Mitchell and Adreana Johnson were both booked into the Wilson County Jail, each charged with possession of shoplifting tools to interfere with anti-theft security devices. Johnson paid her own bond of $1,500 cash, as well as Mitchell’s $1,000 cash bond. They are scheduled to appear in court in August.
