Investigators with the Mt. Juliet Police Department have tracked down the persons believed responsible for recently burglarizing an open garage and unlocked car on the 200 block of Larson Drive thanks to the anonymous tips and social media.

Steven E. Mundy, 46, of White House, and Sandra G. Clubbs, 22, of Mt. Juliet, were arrested and charged in connection with the burglary that took place on Tuesday, Jan. 20. A $300 GPS unit was stolen during the burglary.

Mundy was identified as the suspect after video surveillance was released of him committing the burglary. Approximately five anonymous callers notified investigators via the MJPD's anonymous tip line with information about Mundy. Investigators determined that Mundy was staying at a family member's house in the Mt. Juliet area, but they did not know his exact location.

After reviewing Mundy's Facebook, investigators found a link to a Mt. Juliet resident. Mundy was found at his Facebook friend's home, located in the 700 block of Stonegate drive.

Further investigation revealed that Mundy was assisted in the burglary by Clubbs, who drove Mundy's getaway car, witnessed him commit the burglary and had control over the GPS that was stolen, according to a statement released by the MJPD. She was located at her residence in the 200 block of West Division Street.

"We are thankful for the strong partnerships that we have with our community and humbled by the willingness of citizens in helping us identify the suspect in this case," MJPD Chief James Hambrick said. "Social media is also a great tool for department interaction with the community, and in this case, it helped us track down the suspect's whereabouts."

Mundy was arrested and booked into the Wilson County Jail, charged with aggravated burglary, car burglary and theft of property. He is set to appear in court on Feb. 26 under a $38,000 bond. Clubbs was also arrested and booked into the Wilson County Jail, charged with criminal responsibility - facilitation of a felony and theft of property. She is set to appear in court on Feb. 26 under a $2,500 bond.
