25-year-old Dezisrae Deshawn Reed was one of three women who worked together to steal three handbags valued at $5,750 from Dillard’s at Governor’s Square Mall in Clarksville just before 5 p.m. on New Year’s Eve. Adam Price, an off-duty officer working security at the location, responded as employees yelled and pointed at the women who were fleeing from the store.
Price attempted to catch up with Reed, who made it to the driver’s seat of a white Nissan Rogue. Price grabbed her and attempted to pull her from the vehicle; however, she placed the car in drive and moved forward while he was halfway inside the vehicle. After a struggle, she placed the vehicle into park and was placed into custody.
An inventory search of the vehicle resulted in wire cutters used in the theft, a stash of empty shopping bags from various stores, and marijuana. Reed confessed to cutting the locks for the bags and taking the purses.
