Public asked to identify burglary suspect caught on tape
Sep 19, 2012 6:00 pm
Wilson County investigators ask for the public's help to identify a suspect whose image was captured on video.
According to a release Tuesday, two residential burglaries happened on Vesta Road in the southern part of Wilson County on Thursday. One of the homes had a hidden camera installed and caught the suspect and his car on video. Lt. Ricky Knight and Det. Scott Osborn are working the case.
Knight said the suspect made off with televisions, guns, musical equipment and other electronics from the two homes.
Investigators hope someone will recognize the suspect from the still images captured from the video. In one photo, the suspect's face can be seen clearly, along with the surgical gloves on his hands.
"That's kind of normal for nowadays," Knight said. "They wear those or the cotton gloves."
Knight said whoever the suspect is, he most likely has not been arrested in Wilson County before.
"We didn't recognize him, but we're hoping someone in the public will," he added.
Osborn is the lead investigator on the case.
"We believe he's involved in some residential burglaries in the northeast portion of Rutherford County as well," Osborn said. "All indications are that he works around the county line between Wilson and Rutherford counties."
Anyone with information about the identity of the suspect is asked to contact Knight or Osborn at 615-444-1412.
Staff writer Mary Hinds may be reached at 444-3952, ext. 45 or via email at email@example.com.
