WILLIAMSON COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) – A man the Williamson County Sheriff’s office calls “suspicious” could be linked to home burglaries in the Bethesda and Arno communities.

Authorities are asking residents to be on alert for the man, who’s described as a while male in his 40s.

He’s reportedly approached residents saying he’s looking for his lost dog.

The sheriff’s office has reason to believe he may be responsible for two home burglaries this month on Arno and Bethesda-Arno roads. In both cases, windows were shattered to gain entry.

The man has been seen in those communities since the break-ins and is believed to drive a dark-colored, older-model pickup truck.

Vanessa Sokic lives just around the corner from one of the break-ins. She told News 2 a man with a similar description came to her home not long before her neighbor’s home was burglarized.

“I had a strange feeling about it,” Sokic said. “Neighbors are putting in security systems, cameras. Of course we’re all a little leery about leaving doors unlocked.”

Detectives say if you encounter this man, call 911 immediately. Do not risk your safety, but if it’s possible, get a license tag number or take a picture.

If you have information about this man, call Detective Stephen Shaver at 615-790-5554 or Crime Stoppers at 615-794-4000.
