Country Cupboard Robbed By “Regular Customer”
A suspect has been identified by police. FULL STORY
COOPERTOWN TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – The Country Cupboard Market in Coopertown, located on the corner of Tom Austin Hwy/431 and Old 431 N. MAP was robbed Monday, according to police, by a regular customer.
Danny Lachman and his wife Harsha have operated the Country Cupboard Market at that location since 1987.
A little after 3:00p.m. Monday afternoon, Danny Lachman was entering the market with several days of receipts under his arm in a bank bag. He was returning so his wife could take the deposits to the bank. As he entered the store he encountered a customer at the counter talking with his wife. The man called him by name, said hi and then grabbed the bank bag out from under his arm.
“I thought he was going to playfully take it out and hand it back but then he ran out the door with it,” Mrs. Lachman said.
Mr. Lachman ran out the door after the man and his wife Harsha followed. The suspect entered a white SUV that was sitting at pump number one with the engine running. Mr. Lachman ran to the vehicle, opened the door and tried to retrieve the bag. The suspect hit the gas, dragging Mr. Lachman about 20 feet. When Mr. Lachman fell free of the vehicle he hit his face on the ground. He injured his nose but was otherwise OK.
Though the Lachman’s recognize the suspect as a regular customer, they were not able to put a name to the face.
The suspect is described as a thin white male, 25 to 30, medium height, scruffy, short hair, wearing a white t-shirt, a base-ball cap and driving a white SUV. The suspect escaped with an undisclosed sum of money.
