Court Date Set for Alleged Bungling Burglars

A June 29th court date has been set for two men, charged with breaking into a Cookeville store Friday. Police say 27-year-old Lucas Wayne Garner of Cookeville and 22-year-old David Alan Walker of Crawford were arrested after allegedly breaking into Sportsman's World, but then fleeing the scene, leaving behind their getaway car and their cell phones. They are also facing charges of evading arrest. Police say they began the investigation when a local resident called to report seeing someone taking items from the Sportsman's World building on S. Jefferson Ave. about three o'clock Friday morning.
