A man who tried to walk out of Tractor Supply in a pair of stolen boots will be on probation for a year and was also ordered to pay for the stolen footwear.The defendant, Steven D. Davis, was issued an 11-month, 29-day probationary sentence by General Sessions Judge Bill Locke and must pay $154 restitution, perform 25 hours public service work, and was warned to stay out of Tractor Supply for theft.His charge came after he was seen trying to walk out of the store with the stolen boots on his feet.“He removed a pair of tan, Carhartt lace-up work boots from the shelve and placed them on his feet,” said McMinnville police detective Todd Rowland of witnesses who saw the beginning of the crime. “After wandering around the store with the boots on his feet, he departed the store past the checkout register without paying for the boots.”Davis was detained and subsequently charged with misdemeanor theft. The boots were valued at $154.
