Police responded to the Hollister inside Rivergate Mall Thursday afternoon, where security had 26-year-old Chevala Southall detained. During an interview, Southall admitted that she and a male she knew as “Trey” came into the store and staged nearly $2,000 in merchandise in preparation to steal it. They then left the store and drove the vehicle to the nearby breezeway, where they could run out of the store and into the car. The pair of boosters then re-entered Hollister and began to bag the clothes they had staged, and security was able to stop Southall as she ran out the door. The clothing in the bags she was fleeing with totaled $1,743.00. Trey fled the store, and Southall provided police with the information she knew about his identity.
Chevala D. Southall of 17th Ave N in Nashville, TN, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on December 8th, charged with theft. A judicial commissioner set her bond at $2,500, and the Davidson County Sheriff’s Department gave her pre-trial release from their facility.
