NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Police arrested a couple in connection with recent burglaries after several stolen items were pawned at local shops.
Metropolitan Nashville Police arrested 28-year-old Daniel Spann and 31-year-old Victoria Wilson on Monday following a burglary on 47th Avenue North.
According to affidavits, police said Spann initially broke into a home on Illinois Avenue on July 9. He allegedly stole a TV, Blu-Ray player, and some jewelry.
Two days later, police said he broke into a home on Wilson Boulevard North, just off West End Avenue. In that burglary, the affidavits said he allegedly stole a 60-inch TV, a purse, and credit/debit cards.
In each case, the affidavits said Wilson then pawned the stolen TVs at a local pawn shop on the same day as the burglaries. In the second burglary, Wilson was also accused of using the stolen credit cards to buy items at a couple of stores in the Nashville area.
Police used surveillance from those stores to identify and track Wilson, according to affidavits. On Monday, they were tracking her vehicle when Spann allegedly committed the burglary on 47th Avenue North.
In that case, police said Spann stole a handgun, an iPad, and marijuana, and Wilson was waiting outside in her vehicle.
The affidavit said police then stopped the vehicle along Interstate 40 West, as Wilson has a suspended license and Spann was wanted on outstanding warrants.
Police discovered the items stolen from the burglary in Spann’s backpack. They said he then admitted to all three burglaries.
Police later searched Wilson’s home, where Spann had been living as well. Inside they discovered some items taken from the previous burglaries.
Spann, a convicted felon, was charged with three counts of aggravated burglary along with a probation violation and drug and weapons charges. His bond was set at $125,000.
Wilson was charged with two counts each of theft, forgery, and fraudulent use of a credit card. She was also charged with driving on a suspended license. Bond was set at $23,000.
