Tips Lead To Arrest Of Man In 10 Robertson County Burglaries

CREATED Apr 23, 2014

SPRINGFIELD, Tenn. – Authorities credit tips from the public for the arrest of a man in connection with ten recent burglaries in Robertson County.

The Robertson County Sheriff’s Office took Timmy Raines, Jr. into custody on Tuesday following a burglary in Orlinda.

The homeowner called deputies saying the home on South Lamont Road had been burglarized. An investigation led to the identification and arrest of Raines.

Authorities said Raines had stolen property in his possession when he was taken into custody. He also allegedly confessed to the crimes, which mostly occurred in the areas of Orlinda, Owens Chapel, and Youngville.

Most of the stolen items have been returned to the owners, according to the Sheriff's Office.

“I want to commend our patrol deputies and investigators for their diligent efforts to solve these burglaries, recover property, and apprehend the person responsible,” said Sheriff Bill Holt. “While it doesn’t make the citizens any less of a victim, it is at least somewhat comforting for us and the homeowners to be able to return items that were taken from their homes.”

Raines was booked into the Robertson County Detention Facility on a $30,000 bond.

The public has been urged to call in any suspicious activity they may see in their neighborhood or community. Anyone who sees or needs to report suspicious activity may do so by calling Central Dispatch at (615) 384-4911.
