Police are on the lookout for a man who has allegedly sauntered out of Dodge’s Store with a bottle of milk without paying for it on numerous occasions, so much so that fed-up employees have dubbed him the “milk bandit.”
Although the chocolate milk costs less than $5 a jug, the man has apparently never felt the need to pay for his favorite morning treat, according to a Murfreesboro Police Department incident report filed by Officer Nathan Frost.
“On May 25, I responded to Northwest Broad Street in reference to theft,” Frost reported. “Upon arrival, I made contact with (the complainant) who stated that a white male entered the store, removed a bottle of milk from its location, and walked past all points of sale without paying.”
While speaking with the complainant, Frost reported other employees also “advised that the ‘milk bandit’ has had several similar incidents with the store in the past,” and they are sick and tired of his antics.
Given the situation, Murfreesboro police are now keeping a watchful eye on the store and hope to catch the “milk bandit” soon.
