Mt. Juliet police arrested a trio of serial shoplifters after authorities responded to a theft-in progress call Monday afternoon.
Police said they were notified after Target's loss prevention team recognized Terry Dunn, Dustin Burgess and Karla Montgomery from previous thefts.
Twenty-five-year-old Dunn was arrested as he waited outside in the parking with the getaway car.
Burgess, 26, and 24-year-old Montgomery were both apprehended when they attempted to leave the store.
Police recovered more than $600 of stolen merchandise from a Hermitage Walmart inside the getaway car.
Authorities believe the trio could be involved in other recent thefts in the Mt. Juliet area.
All three are charged with theft. Dunn also faces drug charges.
The investigation is ongoing and additional charges are pending.
