Mt. Juliet police warn residents about car burglars

Posted:
MT. JULIET, Tenn. -

Mt. Juliet police are urging resident to take many precautions when leaving their cars at home or in parking lots.

The police department saw a spike in thefts early Saturday morning, making it obvious that burglars were breaking into vehicles overnight while the owners were asleep.

In total, eight cars were broken into and items such as phones, music players, wallets and laptops were stolen.

Most of the thefts took place in the Willoughby Station or Willow Creek neighborhoods. There were also burglaries in Willow and Cedar Creek, as well as Stone Hollow.

The Mt. Juliet Police Department saw a spike in thefts from vehicles that occurred early Saturday morning. Property was stolen from eight cars that were unlocked. The suspects in each of these thefts took items that were readily carried away. Those items taken include electronic devices, phones, music players, wallets, and laptops.

Police said it is also a good idea to keep a list of serial numbers, including the make and model of the electronic devices you have. This primarily helps in the recovery of the devices if they are stolen.

Residents are encouraged to call 9-1-1 immediately about all suspicious activity that they may see such as cars traveling slowly without lights on.
