Five People Charged In Burglary Investigation

Two Nashville men have been charged with theft, while aggravated burglary charges are pending against two local men -- all as the result of an investigation prompted by a call to the police department last Friday. Authorities say someone saw a man getting out a truck and concealing what appeared to be a crowbar. When police arrived on the scene on an apartment complex on Summerhaven Drive, they arrested 20-year-old Lowell Tyler Will Ambs of Cookeville and 19-year-old Jordan Lee Key of Rickman. They claim the two had burglarized three apartments and had been getting ready to make off with thousands of dollars in merchandise. Further investigation led police to a home on Freedom Avenue where some stolen merchandise was allegedly being sold. That's where they arrested the two Nashville men, along with Freedom Avenue resident Tracie Leight McBee. And police say more arrests may be made, pending the results of the investigation.
