Alleged Burglars Face Court Date Monday

Three area residents will be in court Monday on charges of burglary, which police say stem from two separate incidents.  27-year-old Matthew John Hammond of Shipley Church Road is charged with aggravated burglary for allegedly breaking into a home on South Pickard Avenue. The homeowner told police that someone had kicked in a door and made off with several guns.  Meanwhile, Lindsay Nicole Yates of Baxter and Kenneth Earl Hamilton II of Cookeville, who are both 24, are charged with removing a window from a home on Falling Water Road to gain access, where they went through the residence and made off with more that five thousand dollars worth of merchandise, including two guitars and amps.
