MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WKRN) – There was a major bust in Williamson County after more than 30 burglaries were solved with the arrest of a single man.

His name is Fredrick Carney, and a grand jury indicted him on 83 counts of various charges, such as burglary, aggravated burglary, burglary of a motor vehicle, theft of property, and vandalism.

Detectives told News 2 there were 27 car burglaries and 7 home burglaries between September of 2015 and December 2015 across the county.

A big break in the case came when detectives traced a stolen laptop to a home in Murfreesboro.

Once investigators went inside, they reportedly found stolen items stacked on counter tops and in corners.

Carney, 25, allegedly told investigators he had never been to Williamson County, but he’s now charged in 24 burglaries across Williamson and Murfreesboro.

Detectives have returned many of the stolen items found in his residence, but some merchandise is not identified.

Watches, weapons, electronics, purses were still on display at the sheriff’s department. If you think any of the items are yours, you are urged to contact the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office at 615-790-5560.
