GALLATIN, Tenn.—Police in Tennessee say it wasn’t too difficult to find a man accused of walking out of a Walmart store wearing stolen jeans. He left his old denim behind—along with his wallet.

Officers in Gallatin said 20-year-old Dustin Matthew Marshall tried on the jeans and left without paying for them, but employees found his old jeans and wallet in a dressing room.

WTVF-TV reported police caught up with Marshall and a 19-year-old woman who was with him on Saturday night after a couple ducked out of a Longhorn Steakhouse without paying their bill.

A search of their home turned up evidence of other crimes.

Marshall and his companion were booked into the Sumner County Jail on charges of theft, burglary and other counts. Court officials said Tuesday that neither has an attorney.
