25-year-old Madeline Lublin was charged with stealing a $10,000 Gucci purse despite her boyfriend’s attempt at saving her. On August 3rd, MNPD officers arrived at Mother’s Ruin bar on 6th Ave and spoke to Elouise Holder, who said her $10,000 Gucci Purse had been stolen. Police observed security footage given to them by security that shows Lublin’s boyfriend, Aeden Whittington-Baschoff, grabbing the purse and handing it to Madeline.
The video then shows Madeline placing the purse on the bar for around five minutes before tying a sweatshirt around her neck, hiding it under the sweatshirt, and exiting the bar. Mother’s Ruin gave the police Madeline’s information because she had bought alcohol in the establishment earlier. While police investigated the theft and spoke to Madeline, they said that there would be a felony warrant issued for the robbery of the purse, and Aeden showed up with the purse.
He handed it to the police and said that he found it on the ground and had no idea who Madeline was or that the purse had been stolen. Police arrived at Madeline’s residence to place her under arrest and found Aeden, her live-in boyfriend, also at the residence. Both were charged for their roles in the theft.
Madeline M. Lublin of Stockyard St in Nashville, TN, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on August 3rd, charged with theft of property. She is free on a $2,500 bond.
