33-year-old Charles Gordon was charged with theft and criminal impersonation after he gave officers an incorrect name and date of birth, and was discovered to have twelve outstanding warrants.
On October 29th, Metro Nashville Police Officers responded to a call about shoplifting that occurred at the Dollar General located at 1801 Antioch Pike. When the officers arrived, they met with an employee of the store who was able to identify Charles Gordon as the person that took a cart of items from the store without paying. The officers later made contact with Charles outside as he was trying to stash the cart full of goods behind a dumpster of the business next door.
When the officers asked for his name, Charles told them his name was Charles Stracener, born on April 20th, 1987, and supplied them with a false social security number. The officers were able to figure out his true identity, birthday, and social security number, all of which were different than what was given to the officers. It was later discovered he also had twelve active warrants for him in Davidson County.
Charles Gordon was arrested and charged with theft of merchandise less than $1,000 and criminal impersonation. He is currently jailed in lieu of a $5,000 bond.
