Springfield Police have made an arrest potentially solving over 30 burglaries and ending a long crime spree.
Springfield, TN- On 21 March 2013 the business office of the Main St Church of Christ was broken into by an unknown suspect. An item that was taken was an Apple computer belonging to Mr. Robbie Mackenzie. During the investigation Detective Madison Burnett was contacted by Mr. Mackenzie and told that he was receiving messages from Apple as to where his computer was and a map. The computer was located in Cheatham County in Kingston Springs. Detective Burnett contacted Cheatham County Detective Dale Smith who went to that location and made contact with Sean Perry who told Detective Smith he had purchased the computer earlier that morning.
Detective Burnett and Assistant Chief Danny Johnson went to that location and interviewed Mr. Perry and learned that the person he had purchased it from was a Springfield resident. The computer was recovered and the following day Lucian Green (pictured right) was arrested and charged with burglary and theft at the Church of Christ according to the police report. Mr. Green claimed he had purchased the computer and had not broken into the building. Green was released from jail after posting a $10,000 bond. We will follow the investigation and if it turns out that Mr Green is an innocent victim and is cleared of burglary charges we will let you know.
On Friday, 22 March, acting on a tip, two residences on Batts Blvd were searched. The properties were empty and did not have any utilities hooked up to them. Inside one of those residences Dustin Trenoff (pictured right) was located. Trenoff was being sought for escape and had outstanding warrants as well as being a suspect in the rash of recent Church and car burglaries. Trenoff was arrested without incident and transported to Springfield Police Department where he was interviewed by Detectives Burnett and Terry Dorris. During that interview Trenoff confessed to more than thirty Church, business and car burglaries.
These cases will be presented to the next term of the Robertson County Grand Jury
