Mt. Juliet Police Offering Reward For Information In Car Burglaries

CREATED May 13, 2014

MT. JULIET, Tenn. – Mt. Juliet Police have offered a $500 reward in connection with recent car burglaries in the area.

Over the past few nights, police said thieves have struck unlocked vehicles in the Hickory Hills, Providence, Willoughby Station, Saddle Wood, and Park Glen neighborhoods.

“Car burglary is a crime that can be easily prevented by locking up,” said Police Lieutenant Tyler Chandler in a statement. “We are asking everyone to lock their cars and remove their valuables. Many of the crimes are occurring after 11:00 p.m. into the early morning hours. If a citizen sees someone acting suspiciously late at night, they are urged to call police.”

Five theft of property from auto reports have been completed since May 4. Police said thieves stole a handgun, computers, wallets, purses, an iPad, and mobile phones.

The $500 cash reward will be given to anyone who helps lead to the arrest and conviction of the car burglars.

Anyone with any information was asked 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/.
