28-year-old Desiree Hester and Kayla Coons stole merchandise from Carters on Cane Ridge Parkway at 5:30 p.m. on February 5th. They were observed on video entering the store and loading up two baskets with $1000.00 worth of items. Coons then told Carter’s employees that she left her wallet in the car, so she went to her car and returned as if she was going to pay. This was when Hester opened the door, and both fled in a vehicle registered to Coons’ Greer Road residence. The police interviewed Coons on February 15th, during which she admitted to taking the merchandise and identified Hester. A warrant was issued for Hester’s arrest on February 19th. Hester was booked on the citation of theft on March 16th.
