ARREST: Candace Cole – Don’t Shoplift With Friends That Will Turn You In!

On Monday. 08/28, Candace Donyal Cole was arrested for theft of merchandise from her Sunday evening shopping trip at Citi Trends, which she shops at regularly. According to store surveillance, and witness statements, Candace Cole was shopping at Citi Trends around 6:30PM when she was escorted to a dressing room with two pair of pants, 2 cat body suits, and a shirt. According to the store manager she had a large bag with her when she entered the dressing room, and she exited with only the bag, and left no clothing in the dressing room. She joined a group of other females she was with and briskly exited the store. One of the females noticed that store manager was watching them closely, re-entered the store quickly, and told the store manger that the suspect’s name was ‘Candace Cole’. Apparently in Nashville, friends don’t let friends shoplift. The value of the cat body suits, pants, and shirt was $120.

 

Here is the MNPD Affidavit:

The manager of the store, Ms. Tyson, advised that a female black who is a regular customer entered the store at approximately 1830 hours and asked to try on clothes. Ms. Tyson advised that she escorted her to the dressing room with two pairs of pants, two cat body suits, and a shirt. She advised that the defendant had a very large bag with her.

She advised that one of the females observed this and re entered the store and told Ms. Tyson that the defendant’s name was Candace Cole. Ms. Tyson then observed the defendant get into a gray Nissan Altima Tennessee tag #####. This plate comes back to Candace Cole and comes back to the vehicle.
