MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Police said a man was caught on camera breaking into two East Memphis homes before crashing a stolen truck at Whitten Road and I-240 Monday afternoon.
Kevin Scott was arrested at the scene, along with Pat Burns who was with him.
Investigators said Scott had a suspended driver’s license and no insurance and the 2008 Dodge Ram he was driving was reported stolen three days earlier.
Police said the Dodge Ram also matched the description of a vehicle used in a burglary and attempted burglary in the 5400 block of Shady Grove less than an hour before the crash.
They said Scott was caught on camera breaking into the garage of one house and stealing $500 worth of power tools.
Investigators said another homeowner also got a video of Scott trying to pry open two exterior doors of the house, causing about $1,200 worth of damage.
Scott is facing charges of aggravated burglary, vandalism, reckless driving, and driving with a suspended license and without insurance.
Burns is also charged with aggravated burglary and vandalism.
