When Officer Krynock arrived, employees pointed him towards 38 year old Shawn D. Allen of Knox who was suspected of shoplifting items from the store.
During the investigation Mr. Allen was found to have taken property out of the store without rendering payment.
He was transported to the Marshall County Jail and lodged on a $1,500 bond. He was also given a court date of January 9, 2018.
Listeners and readers are reminded that charging information supported by an affidavit of probable cause is merely an allegation that a crime has been committed and that there is only probable cause to believe a crime has been committed. They are presumed innocent throughout the proceedings and are entitled to be represented by counsel and entitled to a trial by jury at which the State is obligated to provide proof beyond a reasonable doubt before a judgment of guilt may be made.
