32-year-old Joshua Polk was charged with theft of merchandise and unlawful use of drug paraphernalia after he and a partner tried to steal baby clothes and toys from Walmart while in possession of two crack pipes.
On December 7th, Metro Nashville Police Officers were dispatched to a Walmart located at 4040 Nolensville Pike. According to the affidavit, officers first met with the Loss Prevention staff who had Joshua Polk in custody.
Loss prevention stated they saw Joshua and another individual concealing baby clothes and toys under their clothes. Due to a warrant in the state of Georgia, officers could not give him a state citation. When Joshua’s person was searched, officers located a glass crack pipe in the front pocket of his overalls, and another in a Newport cigarette box. Joshua was then taken into police custody.
Joshua Polk was arrested and charged with theft of merchandise and unlawful use of drug paraphernalia. All charges have since been dropped.
