Five people were taken into custody Wednesday when they were caught burglarizing a vacant home in north Nashville.

Police received a call that five black males were seen breaking into the rear door of a residence on Village Trail

Once police arrived, three juvenile suspects were taken into custody as they attempted to flee from the home.

A search of the residence revealed one juvenile suspect and one adult suspect hiding in an interior bedroom.

Police reported Eric Blivens, 18, possessed a small amount of marijuana on his person at the time of his arrest. A revolver was found in the room where he and the juvenile accomplice were hiding.

While police were processing the scene, officers were dispatched to a neighbor’s home on Moorewood Court who reported items had been taken and its door had been kicked in.

The items stolen from the neighboring home, a PlayStation 3, Samsung tablet and GPS system, were found inside the residence where the men were arrested.

Blivens faces multiple charges, including aggravated burglary, vandalism, drug possession and possession of a weapon.

He was booked in the Metro jail with a bond of $99,000.
