Charges Pending In Apartment Burglary
Putnam County sheriff's Deputy Randy Brown says he has taken out warrants charging a Cookeville woman with aggravated burglary and theft of property, after she allegedly broke into a neightbor's apartment and stole a flat screen TV. It happened at an apartment complex on Littlebrook Road when one of the residents reported to the sheriff's office that he arrived home to find that the glass to the side door of the residence had been shattered. Another neighbor reported seeing 29-year-old Lindsey Elise West and another female suspect, carrying off a TV, loading it in the trunk of a green four door car, and speeding away. Deputy Brown says the eyewitness account was enough to convince him to seek warrants. He says West also has active warrants pending against her in both Putnam and Jackson counties for issuing worthless checks.
