A local carpenter who was accused of breaking into a South Church Street business by cutting a hole into a wall has been arrested.
Police responded to the address near Indian Hills and found the hole which allowed for the suspect to enter into a business next to the burned out Pad Thai restaurant. Detective Gorham conducted the investigation into the incident and noted that Ryan M. Thompson had drywall dust on his clothing and shoes, possibly from the recently cut hole. To further place the 28-year old at the scene of the crime, his shoe prints were said to match the prints left in the dust at the business.
Murfreesboro Police transported Thompson to the police station where officers say "He gave a confession about breaking into the business." After the confession was made, Thompson was arrested and charged with Burglary and Vandalism. He will appear in court on October 27, 2014.
