Tullahoma Police are investigating the theft of a prom dress from Millie’s. According to a report by Officer Daryn Gadeken, a woman, who is thought to be from the Sewanee area, recently paid a $100 deposit on a prom dress. When Julia Bryce of Millie’s attempted to deposit in her checking account, the bank notified her that the account had been closed. Bryce then placed the dress back on the rack. Then the woman returned to the store and advised an employee that she had paid for the dress and that she wanted to pick it up. The employee notified Bryce that the woman was attempting to get the dress. Bryce then advised the employee that the dress had not been purchased due to a bad check. Bryce advised that she was in route to the store. But the woman had other ideas, as she allegedly took the dress and left the store without paying the owed amount of $436.61. Tullahoma Police Detective Dale Stone is investigating the theft.
