MT. JULIET, Tenn. -

Two men are now in custody after burglarizing a Mt. Juliet home and crashing into another home as they fled the scene Wednesday afternoon.

Mt. Juliet police responded to the 1000 block of Carriage Trail around 12:30 p.m. after the men's truck hit a home, leaving a gapping hole in the brick.

One person was inside the house at the time but was uninjured.

According to investigators, Christopher Guess and Jason Goode were in the process of burglarizing an under construction home and became spooked by a nearby resident.

The suspects fled the scene in reverse and lost control, causing a trail of damage.

Two mailboxes and a fire hydrant were destroyed in addition to the damaged they caused to the house.

Guess, 22, of Portland, turned himself in at Mt. Juliet police headquarters around 7 p.m. Wednesday.

He is charged with leaving the scene of an accident and failure to report an accident

Jason Goode, 39, of Mt. Juliet, was apprehended around 10 a.m. Thursday morning.

He is charged with leaving the scene of an accident, failure to report an accident, felony vandalism, theft and driving on a revoked driver's license.

Firefighters temporarily repaired the home hit by the men's truck so the homeowner wouldn't have to move out.

Plans to permanently repair the home are underway.
