RBSPD Observes Burglary in Progress
In the early morning hours of June 22nd, a Red Boiling Springs Police Officer foiled a burglary in progress at 150 Old Barton Road. An Officer observed a male running from an abandoned building carrying a large mattress cover filled with commercial grade wire. The male disappeared into the wood line. RBS PD and a Macon County Deputy gave chase through the wooded area with no result. Shortly after, a vehicle that was known to law enforcement was seen fleeing the area.
After further investigation, Officers were able to determine that the wire had been stripped from the abandoned building on Old Barton Road and according to the property representative, the damage to the building that the suspects created in the attempt to strip the wire was well over several thousand dollars.
As the day progressed, Officers were able to develop 54 year old Glenn Berry of Lafayette as one of the suspects in this case. Berry was arrested and charged with Burglary, Felony Theft, and Felony Vandalism. He was booked into Macon County Jail. This investigation is still ongoing. Anyone with any information about this case is urged to contact Red Boiling Springs Police Department.
