|Burglars are stealing jewelry, gold, electronics and guns during the day from homes in the southwestern part of Rutherford County and in nearby Williamson County, according to officials with the Sheriff's Office.
Property was stolen during the past few weeks from eight homes located on John Windrow Road, Coleman Hill Road, Rehoboth Road, state Route 96 West (Franklin Road), Patterson Road, Swamp Road, Shoemaker Road and Panther Creek Road between Franklin Road and U.S. Highway 41 South near Eagleville. All the homes were located near the road.
Sheriff’s Detective Richard Brinkley stopped by homes and businesses in the area Friday asking people for information about the suspects.
“We’re trying to get people to be more aware and more observant,” Brinkley said.
Homeowners can help protect their homes by keeping the doors locked and making it appear someone is at home during the day.
Citizens can help by calling 911 if they see someone kicking in the door of a home or carrying out property. Do not approach the suspects. Citizens are asked to call the sheriff’s office at 898-7770 if they see suspicious activity at a home. They are asked to obtain a description of the suspects and a vehicle and a license plate number if possible.
People who have information about the suspects are asked to call Brinkley at 904-3045, Detective Troy Hooker at 904-3050, Detective Steve Brown at 904-3052 or Detective Sgt. Jerremy Weaver at 904-3046.
