Smyrna Police arrested a juvenile last week in connection with two burglaries in town, with the possibility of more charges to be brought against the suspect.
On July 21 at approximately 8 a.m. officers of the Smyrna Police Department responded to a residence in the 300 block Paul Drive in Smyrna in reference to a reported burglary.
Officers determined that entry was made through a bathroom window of the residence while the home owner was out for a morning walk and money was taken from the home, police said. Officers secured and processed the crime scene and were able to recover fingerprints that were later matched by the State Bureau of Identifications using Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS) to a juvenile male suspect who on July 30 police said was arrested for second degree burglary and theft.
Police said the juvenile suspect was committed to a detention center in default of $6,000 secured bail. Investigators have identified two other possible accomplices who may be linked to this crime as well as two other residential burglaries in the area. Police said more information will be provided as the investigation is concluded.
