Metro police said a citizen's tip led to the arrest of two men on Friday afternoon for their involvement in a break-in at a south Nashville home.

Police reported a neighbor notified them after seeing two men kick in the door and make entry into a home located on Wessex Drive around 12:15 p.m.

Authorities responded to the scene and arrested 21-year-old Jordan Deaderick. His accomplice, 19-year-old Michael Thompson was arrested a short time later while walking on Tusculum Road.

Both men have since admitted their involvement in the crime and are charged with aggravated burglary.

Thompson, who was convicted of two burglaries in February, was also charged with a recent home break-in that occurred on Woburn Way.

He is being held in lieu of $60,000 bond.

Deaderick, who has a previous marijuana possession conviction, is being held in lieu of a $5,000 bond.
