Two Arrested In Cross Plains Burglaries With Help From Citizens

CROSS PLAINS TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – On September 9, the Robertson County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a burglary at a residence on Cross Plains Road.

According to a release from the Sheriff’s office, a witness had given a description of a car seen at the residence occupied by a male and female. The witness was also able to provide the license plate number from the suspect vehicle.

On Monday, September 11, the sheriff’s office received a call in reference to a suspicious vehicle on State Line Road. The caller described a vehicle that matched that of the suspect vehicle and the occupants driving around the area. Deputies responded and located the suspicious vehicle. The license plate of the suspicious vehicle matched that of the witness account from the burglary.

Deputies stopped the vehicle and began to interview the occupants. The male driver, Andrew Hyde, 54, of Springfield, admitted that he had driven the female passenger, Angela Jackson, 51, also of Springfield, to commit the burglary on Cross Plains Road.

“This is another example of how we are working together as a community to keep our neighborhoods safer, and get people off the streets that commit these offenses,” said Chief Deputy Michael Van Dyke. “One witness was observant enough to get the license plate of a car that he knew shouldn’t have been at his neighbor’s house, and another was paying attention to their surroundings and called in a suspicious vehicle. Combined with our deputies’ quick response to the area, this crime was solved.”

“We always encourage everyone to be vigilant, and give us a call if something does not seem right,” said Van Dyke.

Both suspects were issued bonds set at $20,000.
