Burglars hit MJ pawn shop, market

A Mt. Juliet pawn shop and market was burglarized early Tuesday morning by a group of suspects using a stolen moving truck.

Sgt. Tyler Chandler, spokesperson for Mt. Juliet Police Department, said the group reportedly first stole the truck in Nashville and then drove it to Mt. Juliet to haul away stolen goods. Early Tuesday, around 1:45 a.m., the burglary alarm summoned Mt. Juliet Police to the Corner Market located on Benders Ferry Road. As officers arrived on the scene, they noticed that the front glass door to the business was shattered.

The Corner Market is connected to the Prestige Jewelry and Loan, and the suspects reportedly forced down the connecting door to gain entry into the pawn shop. A large amount of cigarettes was stolen from the Corner Market along with beer.
