Mt. Juliet, Tenn. – Under the cover of darkness, burglars targeted three Mt. Juliet neighborhoods looking for valuables to steal from unlocked cars. Around eight reported unlocked cars were rummaged through, and the thieves made away with debit cards, cash, and GPS devices during the early morning hours on Monday, October 13, 2014.
In one incident, thieves entered an unlocked car and found a set of car keys for another car in the driveway. They used those keys to steal a 2011 Gray Honda Accord bearing Tennessee Tag K4590Z.
Willoughby Station, Hickory Hills, and Mt. Vernon Estates neighborhoods were hit by the car burglars, and police took one stolen vehicle report and six theft reports. The specific streets affected by the burglaries include Brighton Circle, Canberra Way, Greer Court, Lacie Court, Norfolk Court, Wellington Way, and Yarmouth Lane.
These crimes should be a reminder that valuables should not be left in vehicles, and residents should always lock their car doors to prevent victimization.
Those who provide information about these crimes that lead to the conviction of the offenders can receive a $500.00 cash reward.
