Man wanted in connection to multiple Maury County break-ins

Posted:
MAURY COUNTY, Tenn. -

Maury County authorities are on the lookout for a home burglar who has struck as many as five times in communities located in the east part of the county.

Detectives say the bandit took guns, jewels, computers and gaming equipment during the home burglaries which occurred around Interstate 65 and Bear Creeks Pike.

The most recent break-in occurred on February 7 where the burglar was caught on surveillance video breaking out a glass door and stealing guns from a home.

The homeowner, Michael Yuhas told Nashville's News 2 he had the surveillance cameras added to his home after a previous break-in.

The footage shows the man coming up the stairs, peering in the back windows before jerking out the cable upon noticing the camera.

"Luckily my wife wasn't home," Yuhas said. "You don't want to come home and find someone in your house."

One of the guns taken from the 22-year-old's home was a 30-30 rifle from the 1940s.

"It's an heirloom," Yuhas said. "My grandfather shot his first deer. My father shot his first deer and it was passed down to me."

Investigators say the suspect is suspected in at least four break-ins that occurred in a two day period.

"His MO is the same. He checks the front of the house and then breaks a window or glass in the back," Investigator Terry Dial said.

Anyone with information should call the Maury County Sheriff's Office at 931-380-5733.
