A Tracy City man has been charged with burglarizing a Shelbyville pharmacy in 2012.
Robert Ferrell Nunley, 43, of Tracy City was charged Friday with burglary, theft of property over $10,000 and criminal conspiracy in the Jan. 8, 2012 burglary at McGee's Prescription Center, Det. Lt. Brian Crews of the Shelbyville Police Department said Monday.
"We caught a large break in September when a pharmacy was burglarized in Sevierville," Crews said. "A black Range Rover was seen on video."
"The Range Rover was spotted the next day by a Sevierville officer. He discovered it had a stolen tag and started a pursuit."
The pursuit ended in a crash and Nunley's arrest.
Crews said he saw the police mug shot of Nunley and recognized him from video of the McGee's burglary.
A regional law enforcement website, in which messages detailing incidents including robberies such as these, helped investigators pin down the details, Crews said.
"He is suspected in a number of pharmacy burglaries throughout the Southeast," Crews said.
A large number of pills were stolen in the 2012 incident.
