JEFFERSON COUNTY — A 45-year-old Adamsville man was in Jefferson County Jail on Friday after a burglary that occurred just north of Pinson in unincorporated Jefferson County.
Timothy Bryan Campbell is charged with second-degree burglary, third-degree burglary, third-degree theft of property, second-degree criminal mischief, resisting arrest, attempting to elude and possession of burglary tools, according to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office. Campbell’s bonds total $85,000.
Sgt. Jack Self said that while in the area, deputies received a call reporting two vehicles broken into in the 4300 block of Patty Lane. The complainants went out Friday morning and found their cars had been broken into, he said.
Self said two deputies were investigating the vehicles when two girls, ages approximately 9 and 14, ran toward them in their pajamas. Self said the girls were “distraught” and told deputies that someone was trying to break into their house in the 8200 block of Tennessee Pike Road. Deputies went to the address and found the front door open, Self said.
While clearing the house deputies found Campbell inside. He appeared to be going through the house looking for food or other items to steal, Self said. The girls said that the suspect came to the house and knocked on the front door. When they did not answer, he went to the side of the house and attempted to break the window out, Self said. The girls ran out the front door and found the deputies nearby.
