A manager with Asset Protection at Best Buy, told the officer that he had interviewed Carter and he admitted to stealing a number of items worth an estimated $6479.95. The affidavit also says Carter gave a written confession to store personnel.

The items Carter is accused of stealing include: a Boston acoustic Soundwave, valued at $499.99, an HP laptop, valued at $450, a Sony camcorder, valued at $250, a 60-inch Samsung TV, valued at $1,799.99, a 65-inch Samsung TV, valued at $2,499.99, a 1000 AMP kicker, valued at $550, a Nintendo DSI, valued at $99.99, a Pioneer CD player, valued at $275, and a Sony PS3 controller, valued at 54.99.
