MEMPHIS, TN — (09-11-23) — Police have confirmed the capture of  Nathan Bowdrey, the alleged burglar who broke into the popular Romantix adult novelty store on September 1.  Detectives confirmed to JRL CHARTS Pleasure Products News that a suspect was taken into custody and charged on Sunday September 3.

On August 11, officers say a victim reported her 2018 Nissan Maxima had been stolen from southwest Memphis.

Then on September 3, officers responded to East Memphis regarding a stolen car tag. The car was reportedly parked directly in front of Plato’s Closet, which occupied only one customer, Nathan Bowdrey.

After an inventory check of the stolen Maxima, officers said they located a black pistol under the driver’s seat, a black mask with a Nike symbol in the corner, “unique” Nike blue and purple shoes, and several adult toys in the trunk.

Officers later found that a burglary report from the popular Romantix adult novelty store had been filed. The burglary happened on September 1, and the same items reported stolen were the same items found in the stolen Maxima. What a coincidence.

According to investigators working on the burglary case, Romantix’ surveillance footage showed that the Maxima was the vehicle used during the crime. The footage also showed the suspect wearing a black ski mask with the Nike logo and blue and purple shoes found in the Maxima.

Not to mention Bowdrey’s dreads, eyes, nose, and tattoo on his left arm were all clearly seen on Romantix’ surveillance video as well, said investigators.
