MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -- Theft charges were filed Monday against a former Outpost Armory employee accused of stealing scopes, knives and accessories from his employer during the past six months.

According to officials with the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office, authorities have charged 34-year-old Kyle E. Miller, of Jim Cummings Highway near Bradyville, Tenn., with one count of felony theft for allegedly stealing more than $1,000 worth of property, following a monthlong investigation by Detective Steve Craig.

Miller is accused of stealing the merchandise from The Outpost Armory, located on Miller Lane in Christiana, Tenn., while he was employed at the business for the past eight months, Craig said.

Officials have confirmed that no firearms were stolen from the store.

Miller has since been terminated.

“We were able to recover over $5,000 of the merchandise,” Craig said.

The property will be returned to the store once the case is resolved in court.

Miller was charged and booked into the Rutherford County Adult Detention Center in Murfreesboro, where he was released after posting $3,000 bond.

A preliminary hearing in the case has been set for Wednesday, Jan. 22, in Rutherford County General Sessions Court.

Well this is disappointing to read.A man from Tennessee was stealing merchandise from an armory store, where he was employed. As if Tennessee is not fighting enough negative stereotypes, this white trash redneck pulls this stunt. For anyone not from Tennessee that may be reading this article, we are not all like this.Regardless of where this man was from, this was one of the most idiotic schemes I've read. In today's day and age how could anyone possibly think they could get away with stealing anything arms related. Gun laws are stricter than they've ever been, and this guy thinks he can get away with stealing a couple thousand dollars worth of equipment? Get real. What is even more shocking is the fact that he actually got away with it for six months! That is six months that this man could have been supplying terrorists, or other unsafe people, with armory equipment and knives.It is said in the article that they recovered five thousand dollars worth of the missing merchandise, but it is never revealed what the grand total amount of his thievery was. This is utterly disgusting on both ends of the law. He never should have been stealing, but it also should not have taken six months to realize what he was doing.
