CREATED Jun 2, 2014

SPRINGFIELD, Tenn. – A firefighter for the Springfield Fire Department, along with his wife, have been accused of buying stolen goods.

Officials with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said Kevin and Avonda Dickerson, both age 34, have been charged with one count of Theft Over $500.

The couple was indicted on May 22, after the TBI said they allegedly bought items they knew were stolen on three separate occasions. The items reportedly ranged from clothing to various items, totaling nearly $1,000.

The TBI said the Dickerson’s only paid $80 for the stolen items.

Kevin Dickerson, a Springfield firefighter, also reportedly owns a business called Kevin’s Home Cooking. The TBI said some items recently shoplifted from the area were allegedly sold to the business for his personal use.

The Dickerson’s turned themselves into authorities with the Robertson County Jail on Monday. They both posted $1,000 bond and were released.
