The Brown County Sheriff's Office Sunday arrested a Chicago, IL man for theft, burglary and criminal mischief after he allegedly took some items from a home located on Lanham Ridge Road and burned other items.
Deputy Greg Pittman, with the sheriff's office, says he found an item in 43-year-old Thomas Westgard's truck that was identified by the victim as having been taken from the home. Pittman then obtained a search warrant for the truck.
Once the search warrant was obtained, a second item belonging to the victim was found that was taken from the home.
Westgard was then charged and booked into the Brown County Jail without incident.
Nashville Police assisted Deputy Pittman at the scene.
