18-year-old Javonte Gordon entered the Downtown Wine and Spirits on 2nd Avenue with three juvenile co-defendants on July 20. Once inside, the entire group reportedly worked in concert to steal approximately $100 worth of candy. Police say Gordon distracted the clerk, Silas Lunsford, by engaging in conversation and even purchasing some candy. The other three allegedly blocked the view of the clerk and stole the candy without paying. The entire incident was captured on the store’s surveillance cameras, and Detective Riley Brewer identified the defendants through the video, and warrants were issued in August. Gordon was taken into custody last week on the charge of theft of merchandise.
