Police Believe Break-In At Local College Inside Job


NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Someone came through a window and stole thousands of dollars from the bookstore at Nashville State Technical College, and police it may have been an inside job.

The break-in happened the night of May 3 or the morning of May 4 in West Nashville. Someone threw a rock to break out a window at the Nashville State Tech bookstore.  

"The suspect or suspects had gone in and taken a substantial amount of money from the safe. They also took a display of golden class rings and several pieces of computer equipment," said Nashville police officer Mike Moss.

The burglary was caught on tape, and police are hoping enhancing the video will give them a good look at the suspect.

"We've got three or four good pictures of the suspects. Getting the video worked on will hopefully give us a good face shot to this person identified," said Moss.

Enhancing the video could lead detectives to someone familiar with the school. They said there was a good possibility the burglary was an inside job.

"Possibly a former employee or someone at the school who had knowledge of how to get into the bookstore and how to get into the office during those hours when the burglary occurred, and to know the money would be in the safe at that time," said Moss.

If you have information about the burglary of the Nashville State Tech book store on White Bridge Road call Crime Stoppers at 74 - CRIME.
