BPD asks for public's help in locating suspected burglars

Jeffery W. Clark

BRISTOL – Bristol, Tennessee police are asking for the public's help in locating the person or people who may have been working with a man accused of burglarizing a Bristol residence.

On Monday, Bristol police officers arrested Jeffery W. Clark, 25, after a woman at 1836 Bay St. told officers she woke up to find an intruder in her house.

In a press release, police said they tracked the man they believed to be the intruder to a residence on Windsor Avenue. Inside that residence, police said, officers found property that had been reported missing from the house on Bay Street, as well as other property they think was taken in other reported burglaries.

Clark was charged with aggravated burglary, burglary of an automobile and theft, and was taken to the Sullivan County Detention Jail.

Despite Clark's arrest, police said the investigation into the suspected burglaries is ongoing, and are asking for the public's help in locating others who may have been involved in them. Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact BPD Investigator Brian Hess at (423)989-5530, or by email at bhess@bristoltn.org. Those who want to remain anonymous can submit a tip on the BPD tip line at 764-8477, or by email at tips@bristoltn.org.
