NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Police are still searching for a suspected burglar in the Donelson area in who police have issued a total of eight warrants for.

Donelson neighbors formed a community watch group after an unknown man broke into homes in the area and was even spotted on surveillance footage holding an axe while trying to get inside a home.

Metro Nashville Police officials identified the man as 43-year-old Labar Pratt.

They said in a press release they've issued the following warrants on Pratt: four counts of felony vehicle burglary, one count of felony attempted vehicle theft, one count felony vandalism, one count of misdemeanor criminal trespassing and one count of misdemeanor drug possession.

Officials said the vehicle burglary and attempted vehicle theft charges stem from break-ins to vehicles parked on the 500 block of Marriott Drive last Wednesday.

When Pratt has been spotted by neighbors, he allegedly runs into nearby wooded areas. An MNPD helicopter flew over woods looking for Pratt two days last week with no success.

Anyone who may see him was asked to call the Emergency Communications Center at 615-862-8600 or Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463. He has been known to frequent the area of Elm Hill Pike/Atrium Way and Briley Parkway.
