A burglary investigation led Metro police to arrest two young suspected serial burglars accused of at least seven apartment break-ins in southern Davidson County since May 31.

Adrianon Handy, 20, and a 15-year-old accomplice are charged in connection to three break-ins at the Arbor Hills apartments and three break-ins at the Cedar Pointe apartments, according to police, who also charged Handy with burglarizing an apartment on Mountain High Drive.

The investigation by South Precinct detectives followed a call on June 2 in which a Cedar Pointe resident reported two suspicious persons wearing backpacks walking in the area. That person also reported finding two TVs in a wooded area nearby. Police arrived and learned that four apartments had been broken into.

Detectives Patrick Baird and Phillip Klarer later identified Handy, of Winthorne Drive, and the teen as suspects in the burglaries. Police said that Handy allegedly admitted to the burglaries in a interview, and that they later recovered stolen electronics connected to the break-ins in a Cedar Pointe Parkway apartment, which led to the arrest of the 15-year-old suspect.

Police charged Handy with seven counts each of aggravated burglary and theft. The 15-year-old is charged in Juvenile Court with six counts each of aggravated burglary and theft.

Handy is being held in lieu of $70,000 bond.

It's not mentioned that the "witness" at Cedar Pointe was actually an employee, who chased the suspects down and tackled them!
