Her mother, who had selected the items, would then exit the store with the bags of unpaid merchandise. Lopez wrote a statement to the store’s loss prevention manager, Steve Gray, admitting to the thefts and stating she was willing to pay for the items taken.
Rube Lopez of Hillhurst Dr in Nashville, TN, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on March 29th, charged with theft. A judicial commissioner set her bond at $2,500.
