Starting in mid-December and crossing over into the New Year, the Belinda City neighborhood in Mt. Juliet was hit hard with five residential burglaries.
Resulting from a suspicious persons call by one of the burglary victims, the Mt. Juliet Police Department has been able to solve all recent Belinda City neighborhood residential burglaries.
On Jan. 3 at approximately 11:35 a.m., the Mt. Juliet Police Department responded to a report of juveniles acting suspiciously in the front yard of a residence that was recently burglarized.
Upon arrival, officers made contact with two male juveniles and further investigation revealed that they could be the suspects in the recent rash of home burglaries.
The juveniles were apparently looking for item they lost when they committed a burglary at that residence on Dec. 31, 2011.
Their parents were contacted, and the male suspects were detained and transported to police headquarters for further questioning by detectives.
It was revealed that two female juveniles were also involved.
The female suspects were contacted and willingly participated in the investigation.
All suspects admitted to their actions of burglarizing five homes in the Belinda City neighborhood.
Each home was in walking distance of each other.
One of the homes was abandoned, and that is where the offenders stored the stolen property.
Items that were stolen included video game consoles, video games, DVDs, clothing, cash, ammunition and firearms.
Detectives were able to recover all the stolen property, which will be returned to their proper owner.
The juvenile offenders’ age range from 14 to 17, and they will be receiving felony charges of Aggravated Burglary that will be filed with the Juvenile Court.
All burglaries occurred on Meadowview Drive, Sunny Acre Drive, and Meadowbrook Court in the Belinda City neighborhood.
