Arrest Made In Rash Of Hickory Hill Burglaries
(Memphis) Some relief in one Hickory Hill neighborhood after police made an arrest in a rash of home burglaries.
20-year old Jeremy Mosley is accused of breaking into several on Jamsmine Cove, Jasmine drive and Tulip Tree Cove nearby.
Investigators say Mosely admitted to burglarizing five homes between September 13 and October 27 and stealing around $12,000 worth of jewelry and electronics.
Montavious Simpson said earlier this month someone broke into his home on Jasmine Cove and he assumed it was someone from the neighborhood.
“Someone was watching because every time we leave it seemed like something happened,” said Simpson.
Mosley’s grandmother’s house is across the street from one of the homes that was burglarized.
She said her grandson, who has mental health issues, may have confessed to the crimes, but she doesn’t think he did it alone.
Neighbors say others had to be involved and they don’t plan to let down their guard any time soon.
Mosley is charged with five counts of aggravated burglary and five counts of theft of property.
He was arrested back in July for theft and is being held on $350,000 bond.
