Auto burglars

18-year-old Nimrod Aregay, 18-year-old Jaylen Haddock, 19-year-old Deshawn Allen and 20-year-old Ahmed Abdalla, all of Nashville, were arrested in Franklin on burglary charges.

An alert citizen was credited with helping the Franklin Police Department stop four auto burglars in their tracks on Saturday. 

The citizen called police at 2:45 a.m. Saturday after witnessing a group of suspects checking car door handles at Harpeth River Oaks Apartments on Champions Circle. Responding officers stopped the suspect’s vehicle as it was leaving the area and found recently stolen property inside.

All four suspects were arrested and charged with vehicle burglary: 18-year-old Nimrod Aregay, 18-year-old Jaylen Haddock, 19-year-old Deshawn Allen and 20-year-old Ahmed Abdalla. Each resides in Nashville.

Aregay and Allen have been released on the $10,000 bond set by the Magistrate. Abdalla and Haddock remain jailed on a $10,000 bond.
