WCSD arrests vehicle burglary suspect

From Post staff reports

A man suspected in a number of vehicle burglaries in area subdivisions was arrested by Tuesday by Wilson County Sheriffs Department detectives.

Several vehicle burglaries were reported in the subdivisions of Lankford Farms, Hidden Harbor and the Saundersville Road area of West Wilson County, said Sheriff Robert Bryan.

Increased patrols in these areas led to the development of Jamie W. Stanfill, 37, as the suspect in the case. After investigation, Stanfill was arrested on unrelated charges and was interviewed by detectives.

Bryan said Stanfill reportedly admitted to approximately 25 car burglaries in Wilson County alone, as well as implicating himself in other burglaries in Mt. Juliet, Lebanon and Sumner County.

Bryan said Stanfill allegedly targeted subdivisions and random vehicles, and the majority of vehicles were unlocked as well as property that was taken was easily accessible and visible from outside the vehicle.

It is, the sheriff said, another reminder that even if your vehicle is at your residence you should lock doors as well as secure items such as computers, iPads, GPSs, etc., so they are not visible from the outside of the vehicle.

All evidence obtained as a result of the investigation will be presented to a Wilson County grand jury for pending charges. Bryan noted that the arrest and prosecution of Stanfill is a result of the collaborative effort of Wilson County Sheriffs Office criminal investigators and patrol officers, as well as the officers of Mt. Juliet and Lebanon Police Departmen
