NASHVILLE – The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has obtained indictments for a Springfield couple accused of knowingly buying stolen goods.
At the request of 19th District Attorney General John Carney, TBI Special Agents began investigating Kevin and Avonda Dickerson on April 9, 2014. During the course of the investigation, Agents developed information that on three separate occasions, the couple bought items they knew to be stolen for discounted amounts. The items ranged from clothing to various food items and totaled nearly $1,000, but the Dickersons bought them for a total of $80.
Kevin Dickerson, a Springfield firefighter, also owns a business called Kevin’s Home Cooking. On separate occasions, individuals caught shoplifting in the Springfield area told investigators they sold the items to Dickerson for his business or for the couple’s personal use.
On May 22nd, the Robertson County Grand Jury returned indictments for the couple, charging each of the 34-year-olds with one count of Theft Over $500. The Dickersons turned themselves into the Robertson County Jail this afternoon, where they each posted $1,000 bond and were released.
