Burglary Rings Busted

By Taylor Vinson | 

Those arrested include Reva Withrow, Cornelius Simmons, Terrione Morrison, Patrick Ingram and Scottie Day.

The break in the cases began two weeks ago with the arrest of Patrick Ingram, who is also accused of robbing Farmers National Bank.

It culminated in this week's arrest of day.

"We have solved in excess of thirty burglaries, four forgeries, one bank robbery, and, at this point, the count on the car break-ins may be in excess of a hundred," said Bowling Green Police Chief Doug Hawkins.

Residents of at least three Bowling Green neighborhoods can breath easier tonight, now that police have captured suspects from three different crime sprees.

The sprees span from the Farmer's National Bank robbery to break-ins in the Nutterville and Hartland areas.

Chief Hawkins says one of the suspects taken in to custody even pointed out places that were targeted.

"During the interview with Mr. Day, he was cooperative with us in helping us identify homes that he had broken into and cars that he had broken into," Hawkins recalled.

Chief Hawkins believes these arrests can help give Bowling Green residents a little more peace of mind.

"From a community perspective, I think it creates a little more peace and the community being at ease knowing that we've been able to identify and take these suspects off the street," said Hawkins.

Chief Hawkins says he expects it will be thirty to sixty days before police can bring their evidence before a grand jury.

According to Hawkins, the Bent Tree and Hartland spree stemmed back to July, and the Fairview and Nutterville burglaries had been going on the last two to three months.
