TENN Blue: Wal-Mart Denim Thief Leaves Behind Old Jeans...and His Wallet

Wal-Mart Thief Steals New Pair of Jeans, Leaves Behind His Old Denim ...and His Wallet

GALLATIN, Tenn. (CBS/WTVF/AP) Police in Tennessee say it wasn't too difficult to find a man accused of walking out of a Wal-Mart store wearing stolen jeans.

He left his old denim behind in a dressing room - along with his wallet.

Officers in Gallatin said 20-year-old Dustin Matthew Marshall tried on the jeans and left without paying for them, but employees soon found the jeans he wore into the store.

CBS affiliate WTVF reported police caught up with Marshall and a 19-year-old woman who was with him on Saturday night after a couple ducked out of a Longhorn Steakhouse without paying their bill.

Authorities say a search of their home turned up evidence of other crimes.

Marshall and his companion were booked into the Sumner County Jail on charges of theft, burglary and other counts.
