Willoughby Station and Mt. Vernon Estates Struck by Car Burglars Targeting Unlocked Cars

Mt. Juliet, Tenn. – Mt. Juliet Police continue to urge residents to remove their valuables and lock their cars after eight unlocked cars were burglarized overnight. Using the advantage of darkness and likelihood that they will find unlocked cars, burglars took to the Willoughby Station and Mt. Vernon Estates neighborhoods pulling on door handles. Upon finding an unlocked door, the thieves entered the car and took anything of value that they could find.

The unknown burglars took money, debit cards, gifts, a backpack, laptop computer, and many other items. In addition, locked glove compartments were damaged as the burglars worked to gain access to the contents inside. The specific streets affected by the burglaries include Sydney Terrace and West Wilson Boulevard.

Residents are urged to remove all valuables from their cars and ensure doors are locked. Also, homeowners are asked to check their outdoor surveillance video footage to see if any suspects were caught on camera operating in the area.


A $500.00 cash reward is being offered to anyone that can provide information that leads to the conviction of the offenders responsible for these crimes.

Anyone with any information regarding the burglaries are encouraged to call the Mt. Juliet Police Department at (615) 754-2550. Information can also be given anonymously by calling (615) 754-TIPS (8477) or via the Mt. Juliet Police Department website at http://www.mjpd.org/ .
