Nashville Booster charged in theft of almost $5,000 worth of Titans Jerseys from Pro Shop — Orlexus Elliott

23-year-old #BoosterClub member Orlexus Elliott is charged in the theft of $4,720 worth of Titans Jerseys from the pro shop on November 5th. Orlexus and another female, whose arrest is pending, entered the Titans Pro Shop at 1 Titans way earlier this month, grabbed all the jerseys they could, and fled the store, fleeing in a black Nissan Murano convertible. Nashville has a thriving underground of ‘boosters’ who steal racks of items from stores to sell online.

As soon as police initially interviewed Elliott about this theft, she removed the stolen items from her social media, where she had the jerseys listed for sale, and offered to arrange to have them returned. Police gave her time to do that, however, she never followed through. She was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail Thursday, charged with felony theft. She is free on a $2,500 bond.

Man confronts private investigator he caught following him — Bill Whitaker arrested

54-year-old year Bill Whitaker, of Ohio, was leaving a Nashville Hotel when he noticed someone following him. He traveled just down the road to stop, and the lady following him parked across the street, waiting and watching him. Being legally armed, he drove his truck across the curb, walked up to her window, and exchanged words while holding his weapon.

The lady was a (not so discreet) beginner private investigator, named Jennifer Parker, of the Dillon Agency, who offers their services on ‘Thumbtack’ and other style websites. She claims he threatened to kill her if she didn’t stop following him, he says he thought she was a gang member stalking him. Police charged him with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and he is free on a $2,500 bond. The Dillon Agency did not respond to multiple requests for comment prior to publication.
