Group break into home to throw party
Tuesday, September 9, 2014

The Mt. Juliet Police Department is looking for a group of people who broke into a home to throw a party recently. 

On Aug. 15, a homeowner on Augusta Drive came home to their back door kicked in and a house filled with pizza boxes, a busted watermelon and beer cans all over the floor. The homeowners called the police, who were able to find a Walmart receipt that could lead to their arrest. 

After checking the Walmart surveillance tapes, investigators were able to obtain footage of three suspects, two white males and a white female. A third white male was outside in the getaway vehicle. The suspects  departed Walmart in a black 2002-2006 Nissan Altima that had out of state tags. They also shoplifted while in Walmart.
