Ex-Motel Resident Charged With Burglary

A man who had been evicted from a Cookeville motel room has now been charged with breaking into the business located next to the motel. Authorities say 50-year-old Hernandez Desicato Wilson had been living at the Winona Inn motel on East Spring Street, but had been evicted shortly before a break-in Tuesday at the Fireside Lounge, which is located on the other end of the building. Police say the owners gave them Wilson's name as a possible suspect in the case, and he later admitted to the crimes. He reportedly cut his hand while tossing a rock through the window of the Lounge, but got away with just a five dollar roll of dimes. He also allegedly told police that he drank a beer while inside. Burglary and theft charges are now pending against him in General Sessions court.
