19-year-old Janiyah Buchanan was one of several young women caught concealing items in their personal bags from the Forever 21 store inside Opry Mills Mall on Saturday. In total, the group took approximately $700 in merchandise, which police were able to confirm via the store’s security video, which they watched while Mall Security detained some of the suspects in the parking lot. Buchanan did not qualify for a citation as she had an outstanding warrant from a May theft where she, along with other co-defendants, took over $500 in merchandise from the Burlington Coat Factory in Madison.
