Authorities said a police K-9 caught a suspect in two Tuesday night break-ins.
According to police reports, a 28-year-old man heard noises in his house shortly before 6 p.m. on the 100 block of River Drive and when he went to investigate, he reportedly saw a stranger. The victim told police he chased the intruder, but lost him in a bushy area.
A K-9 was brought in to track the suspect and apprehended him in the bushes at around the same time a man on the 900 block of Peachtree Drive reported his back door had been kicked in and his home was burglarized.
Police took William Derrick Coley into custody and reportedly connected him to the two break-ins within a short distance of each other.
Coley, 49, of Nashville was charged with two felony counts of breaking and entering. He was jailed in Nash County under a $5,000 secured bond.
