Car burglar leads police on chase
Tuesday, November 25, 2014

A car burglar led Mt. Juliet Police Department officers on a chase Tuesday, Nov. 19. 

Patrick Hammer, 20, Mt. Juliet was apprehended after a lengthy chase, and is believed to be a suspect to many car burglaries in the area. 

A citizen reported a man looking through vehicles in the 1200 block of Shelton Court around 3:30 a.m. Officers spotted the suspect, but he jumped in a car and sped down Old Lebanon Dirt Road. After losing the suspect for a time during the high speed chase, officers located the car on a side street. The suspect jumped out of the car and continued the chase on foot over a fence, through a creek and into a nearby field. 

“Our citizens are partners in our fight against crime, and watchful citizens, who report suspicious activity, are invaluable,” said Police Chief James Hambrick. “The system worked well in this incident, and I’m glad the suspect was caught before more citizens became victims to his criminal acts.”

Hammer was arrested and booked into the Wilson County Jail, charged with Burglary – Motor Vehicle, Evading Arrest, and Reckless Endangerment. He is set to appear in court on January, 13, 2015 under a $17,500.00 bond.

 
Big projects approved by Planning Commission

A new neighborhood with 590 homes, Under Armour and White Castle were all approved by the planning commission Thursday night. 

Stone Farm, which will be located next to Mt. Juliet High School is poised to change the landscape along Golden Bear Gateway. The neighborhood will be 590 homes upon completion, will have nearly two miles of greenway, a large amenity center at the front of the development, as well as a commercial lot along the road front. The 274 acres will run along the south side of the high school and wrap around the back in where the athletic fields are located. 

In addition to the greenway which will run along Cedar Creek, the developers are willing to put up a traffic light and will expand the sewer in the area, which will help some developments in the area who are not on City Sewer. City of Mt. Juliet staff asked that the developers help widen the bridge and a piece of roadway in front and just south of the property, which they agreed to after the 350th certificate of occupancy had been issued. 

The planning commission also approved the first phase of the Under Armour building, which by itself is 1,083,543 square feet. The building is located off of Eastgate Boulevard, and will have 1,155 parking spaces. 

The planning commission also approved the site plan for White Castle which will be located at Paddocks on the corner of N. Mt. Juliet Road and Pleasant Grove Road. The project has been several years in the making, as it was one of the first contacts City Manager Kenny Martin made at the annual business convention in Las Vegas, Nev. years ago. A site plan was approved for the spot on Jan. 19, 2012, but it had expired.
