Two Burglars Arrested In Separate Cases

Court dates are scheduled later this month for two Cookeville-area residents, charged with aggravated burglary in two separate incidents.  Police say 50-year-old Terry Glen Looper of Algood was charged after an investigation of a break-in on Garden Lane. Police say he allegedly forced his way into a home there under the belief that he was at a location where he had previously purchased drugs.  Meanwhile, 27-year-old Stephen Lee Hood of Sparta was arrested after the sheriff's department investigated a burglary on Cookeville Boat Dock Road.  Hood allegedly had an accomplice convince the homeowner to leave the area, but she returned home in the midst of the burglary.
