Case: 13-17798 Date: July 2, 2013 Time: 1:45 a.m.
Location: 20 Benders Ferry Road (Corner Market & Prestige Jewelry & Loan)
Mt. Juliet, Tenn. – A Mt. Juliet pawn shop and market was burglarized early this morning by a group of burglars using a stolen moving truck. The group first stole the truck in Nashville, and they drove it to Mt. Juliet to haul away stolen goods. Early Tuesday morning around 1:45 a.m. the burglary alarm summoned Mt. Juliet Police to the Corner Market located on Benders Ferry Road. As officers arrived on the scene, they noticed that the front glass door to the business was shattered.
The Corner Market is connected to the Prestige Jewelry and Loan, and the burglars forced down the connecting door to gain entry into the pawn shop. A large amount of cigarettes was stolen from the Corner Market, and they even stole beer. A lone burglar entered the pawn shop and targeted jewelry. Currently, investigators are still determining the amount and value of stolen jewelry. It is expected to be well over $30,000.00. Video surveillance shows a large box-style Penske moving truck backing up to the front door of the business. Three suspects exited the truck, and one smashed the front door with a sledge hammer. All three suspects entered to begin their thievery. A blood trail was left throughout the Corner Market as one suspect injured himself while busting through the glass door. The stolen truck was later located in Wilson County.
The Mt. Juliet Police Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying the thieves. There is great surveillance video, and the suspects are easily recognizable. The suspects are described as:
Suspect 1: Middle-aged Black Male with dredlock-stye black hair, around 5’8″ tall with a stocky build.
Suspect 2: Middle-aged White Female, around 5’6″ tall with a stocky/athletic build.
Suspect 3: Middle-aged White Male with mullet-style blonde hair, around 6’0″ tall with a skinny build
