Court Date Set For Alleged Burglar

Police say a man who broke into a Cookeville ice cream store early Monday has an arraignment date in General Sessions Court next month. 37-year-old Brian Neal Hammons, of Hodgenville, Kentucky, is accused of prying open a rear door at the Baskin Robbins store and then drilling into a safe. A man working in a nearby building heard the commotion and called police, who captured Hammons as he ran out the front door. Police claim they found several metal cutting tools in his backpack. He'll be in court on the 23rd of August.
