August 30, 2016
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
A three-month investigation into N & P Discount Tobacco & Beer Market’s alleged dealings with stolen merchandise resulted in today’s police department raid on the business and the seizure of cigarettes, energy drinks, laundry detergent, batteries, and various clothing items. Detectives also seized a stolen pistol from the market.
Beginning in May, Pawn & Fraud Unit detectives investigated the market, located at 3002 Clarksville Pike. The market’s owner/operator, Nabih Zaher, 59, is alleged to have purchased merchandise on seven separate occasions from a police operative who clearly represented the items as being stolen. Zaher paid the operative about a third of what the merchandise was actually worth.
Charges are anticipated against Zaher.
