Murfreesboro Police responded to 14 auto burglaries and one attempted auto burglary in Murfreesboro on Nov. 7, with eight of the thefts reported at Aspen Heights. Two of the victims at Aspen Heights were MTSU students. This is a very different report from students forgetting their keys in their cars and needing the services of locksmiths, instead, they’re getting cars stolen, whether locked or not.
Around 9 a.m., the first auto burglary at Aspen Heights was reported after an MTSU student found video on his ADT home security camera of two males trying to break into his car. This just goes to show the importance of having an Oklahoma home security system because the student was alerted to the activity as soon as it happened. According to the police report, the suspects were seen pulling on the locked doors of the student’s truck and his roommate’s car before leaving the scene.
An hour and a half later, another student reported that her vehicle had been burglarized, during which an Invicta watch was allegedly stolen.
Three more victims from Aspen Heights reported having items such as a Steve Madden backpack, a blank check and a black Northface jacket stolen from their cars. From the eight reports, three of the cars were broken into but not robbed.
Seven additional auto burglaries were reported in Murfreesboro on Nov. 7. The locations of the thefts included Arnold Lane, Chariot Drive, Runnymeade Drive, Obrien Drive, Bradyville Pike, W College Street and Bishop Avenue.
One victim reported over $1,000 of stolen personal property after noticing 500 Magic the Gathering cards were missing from his vehicle. Another victim reported a missing radio.
There are no known suspects or further information on these robberies at this time.
