By RACHAEL LONG

CapStar Bank, located on Maryland Way, almost fell victim to a burglary just after midnight Monday morning when an unknown male entered the bank without force and fled when alarms sounded. Nothing was taken.

Another almost-burglary occurred sometime between Wednesday afternoon and Thursday evening, when the front passenger window of a vehicle on Wilson Pike was broken but nothing was taken. Police have no suspects.

In the case of general theft, Brentwood had a busy week.

On Friday, Jan. 11, a women residing on Forest Park Drive was the victim of a phone scam, where currency from prepaid cards was stolen. There are no suspects.

Sometime between 2 a.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. Sunday, a watch was taken from a man’s apartment on Centerview Drive. The suspect is listed as an acquaintance of the victim.

Two instances of shoplifting took place. The first occurred on Saturday, Jan. 12 just after 5 p.m. when speakers were stolen from Best Buy on Galleria Boulevard. Suspects have been described as a white male wearing an orange jacket and jeans and a white female in a black coat.

It was from a TJ Maxx on Franklin Road that the second instance of shoplifting occurred. On the morning of Sunday, Jan. 13, suspects allegedly stole a purse, a handbag and clothing. Suspects are described as two black females in their 30’s, between 5’5” and 5’7.” At the time of the theft, one is reported to have worn a black top and purple pants and the other a purple coat and grey pants.

A Brentwood Rental skid steer, missing since Oct. 31, 2018, was found Jan. 15 on Franklin Road. Until Tuesday, employees were unable to locate the machine, last seen in October. Police have no suspects.

Sometimes theft happens in plain sight, like it did Wednesday evening, when an unknown woman left Noir Nail Salon on Franklin Road at 5:45 p.m. without paying for services.

Someone evidently in serious need of copper piping made rounds this week on several homes under construction on Lehigh Drive. The thief took copper from six Ford Custom Homes between Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Police have no suspects.

Brentwood saw no reports of robbery, vandalism, motor vehicle theft or residential burglary this week.
