Mt. Juliet, Tenn. – Responding to a report from a neighbor about a suspicious person, officers discovered a man inside the attic of a home where he unlawfully entered. Around 1:30 p.m. this afternoon, officers responded to the 200 block of Karen Drive after a neighbor spotted a man that was not allowed to be at a home in the area. When officers arrived, they heard movement inside the house and waited on a homeowner to let them inside.
