Four people were arrested last week in connection with a burglary at a cabinet shop in downtown Dickson.

Dickson Police Department patrol officers spotted three men coming out a side door of the Mulberry Mills building at 100 S. Mulberry St. around 1:30 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 19. Following brief foot pursuits, the three suspects were arrested. Police also charged a woman they believe was acting as a lookout and driver of the truck used to transport the stolen items.

Dickson Police Department Det. Kirk Davidson said a burglary had been reported Saturday morning by Faith Cabinet Works, which rents space inside the former clothing factory. Davidson said approximately $10,000 in carpentry and power tools had been stolen after somebody cut through an interior wall into the business.

Davidson said the investigation led detectives to a home in Burns, where they recovered more of the stolen tools. He said some of the tools might have been sold and investigators are trying to track them down.

Arrested were:

• Alexander Hamilton, 27, of Cheatham County, who is charged with two counts of theft, two counts of burglary, evading arrest, criminal trespass and possession of methamphetamine. He is being held on $27,000 bond;

• Derek Nelms, 27, of Burns, who is charged with two counts of burglary and two counts of theft. He is being held on $8,000 bond;

• Daniel Collins, 36, of Dickson, who is charged with theft, burglary and evading arrest. He is being held on $8,500 bond; and

• Jessica Anderson, 25, of Cheatham County, who is charged with conspiracy to commit burglary and conspiracy to commit theft. She is being held on $8,000 bond.

All of the suspects were booked into the Dickson County Jail and are scheduled to appear in Dickson County General Sessions Court on Sept. 17.
