Tennessee man charged in Walmart thefts

From Local Sources


JASPER — A Tennessee man was in court this week on a local warrant charging him with a pair of thefts at the Walmart Supercenter.

Court documents allege that, on Dec. 28, 2018, Jeremy N. Newberry, 38, Dickson, Tennessee, took merchandise valued at $172.97 from the 4040 N. Newton St. store. Then, on Dec. 29, 2018, he is accused of exerting unauthorized control over a Walmart gift card with the value of the loss placed at $70.74.

The Jasper Police Department investigated the incidents and, on Jan. 10, a warrant charging Newberry with Level 6 felony theft was issued out of Dubois Superior Court. The theft charges were enhanced to Level 6 felonies because of a previous theft conviction on Newberry’s record, according to authorities.

Authorities booked Newberry into the Dubois County Security Center at 7:58 p.m. Saturday on the active warrant.

Newberry appeared in court for an initial hearing Monday, at which time his bond was set at $750 and his next court appearance was scheduled for Nov. 4.
