Wilson County Sheriff’s investigators charged an Old Hickory man in connection with a burglary near Mt. Juliet.

Jeremy Lee Robinson, 25, of Old Hickory, is accused of stealing more than $20,000 worth of items from a home workshop while the owner was out of town the week of Oct. 12.

According to Lt. Ricky Knight of the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office, investigators believe Robinson and at least one other person entered the workshop on two different occasions.

Items reported stolen included two four-wheelers, two welders, generators, a large multi-drawer toolbox filled with tools, two pressure washers and other items.

Knight said Metropolitan Nashville police helped investigators recover some of the stolen property in Davidson County.

“We’re still looking for some tools and things like that,” said Knight. “We’ve still got about $12,000 worth of stuff missing.”

Investigators believe the burglary may be related to other burglaries in the area, according to a Sheriff’s department spokesperson.

Knight said that anyone who has bought anything from Robinson should contact the Sheriff’s department at 615-444-1412.

“There’s the possibility that property was stolen,” said Knight.

Robinson is charged with one count of burglary and one count of theft of property greater than $10,000. He was released on $5,000, and he is scheduled to appear in court Feb. 11.

Investigators said additional charges on Robinson and other suspects will be present to the Wilson County grand jury.
