NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Keeping neighborhoods safe is one goal of the Crime Stoppers program.
Crime Stoppers is helping Metro police locate the people responsible for a string of burglaries on Dickerson Road.
Some of the break-ins were caught on tape.
At 2:45 a.m. Jan. 27, burglars hit two markets in the Belshire area in North Nashville. One happened at the AM Express Market on Dickerson Pike and the other at a market on Rivergate Parkway.
Both crimes were caught on tape.
The suspect used a crow bar to smash through the front door.
After he got inside, he was there less than a minute.
"There's traffic going by all of the time, all during the day and at night," said Metro detective William White. "Someone could have seen the vehicle parked there and might possibly give us the direction it went, or if they know the people driving, the police department would like to know."
Police said another person was driving the car. The car was also captured on camera, and police are hoping the driver will come forward with information about the man committing the crime.
"Once they see that their car is on TV they ought to realize that someone is going to know because it's a Lexus and we believe it's a GS 300," White said.
The suspect is a white male in his 20's or 30's. When he enters the market he seems to be interested in stealing only a couple of items.
"Generally, most of the time it's one of two things: Money or cigarettes," White said.
If anyone has information that can help police solve these burglaries in North Nashville, they should call Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME.
Callers can earn up to $1,000 and remain anonymous.
