Antique shotguns, guitars and computers stolen from Rutherford County homes were recovered and three suspects were charged recently in a burglary investigation, a Rutherford County Sheriff’s detective said Wednesday.
Suspects Camden Smithson, 21, of Jones Lane, Roy Lee Collins, 36, of Miss Ellie Drive in La Vergne and Jessica Wisdom, 24, of East Clark Boulevard were charged with multiple counts of burglary and theft by Detective Jamin Humphress.
They are accused of breaking into homes Nov. 11, 13, 14 and 15 near Twin Oak Drive and Old Woodbury Highway, Humphress said.
Detectives developed suspects who were wanted on unrelated theft charges. When arresting the suspects, a neighbor called the sheriff’s office to report a burglary. Another neighbor identified two of the suspects as allegedly stealing a television from the house.
Investigators interviewed the suspects and learned they apparently sold the stolen property to other people.
“Within an hour, patrol Deputy Mike Hoekstra located one of the individuals who bought the property, leading us to recover numerous items,” Humphress said.
Detectives recovered all of the stolen property except two flat screens TVs and one 9mm handgun. Owners received their property back.
All three suspects were being held at Rutherford County Adult Detention Center. A hearing is set on the charges Dec. 3 and Jan. 22 in General Sessions Court.
