MT. JULIET, Tenn. – Police have arrested both suspects who they said slammed a truck into a home and then took off.

The incident happened in the 1000 Block of Carriage Trail off Nonaville Road around 12:30 p.m.

Around 7 p.m. Wednesday, 22-year-old Christopher Guess of Portland, turned himself in at Mt. Juliet Police headquarters. He was arrested and charged with Leaving the Scene of an Accident and Failure to Report an Accident.

The second suspect, 39-year-old Jason Goode of Mt. Juliet, was arrested around 10 a.m. Thursday. He was charged with Leaving the Scene of an Accident, Failure to Report an Accident, Felony Vandalism, Theft, and Driving on a Revoked Drivers License. 

According to the Mt. Juliet Police Department, the suspects were attempting to steal scrap metal from a nearby home under construction and were spooked. When they fled the scene, they struck two mailboxes, a fire hydrant and then crashed into the home.

The homeowner was inside at the time, but did not suffer any injuries.

Members of the newly-formed Mt. Juliet Fire Department stayed on the scene for most of the afternoon, working to repair the hole in the house and making sure it was structurally sound.

"We are happy to help," said Erron Kinney, Chief of the Mt. Juliet Fire Department.  "We don't want the homeowner displaced and unable to stay in her home.  Now it will be stable enough until she can get a contractor out here to finish everything."
