Tennessee Taco Bell Late-Night Heist: Free Tacos Coupons and… A Soap Dispenser?


Share post:

TAZEWELL, TN – Early Monday morning, Tazewell’s Taco Bell turned into an unexpected crime scene. 

According to police reports it began at 1:00 am, when Tazewell officers raced to the North Broad Street location after reports of a man’s peculiar antics inside the eatery. Anxious employees outside peeked in, allegedly watching Jeremy Sulfridge of Tazewell behind the register, seemingly plotting a heist with free taco coupons and a safe key. 

But the plot thickened – a search revealed not only a bit of marijuana but also, bizarrely, the men’s restroom soap dispenser tucked in Sulfridge’s pants. 

Following a series of escape attempts and scuffles, including allegedly assaulting two deputies during an attempted sprint from custody, Sulfridge now faces a laundry list of charges including theft, attempted burglary, and even public intoxication.
