KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Investigators are talking to two suspects they believe may be behind a string of overnight vehicle burglaries.
Officers were first responded to reports of a vehicle burglary at the Country Oaks Apts., 2615 Scarlett Oak Court, around 4:20 a.m. on Tuesday. Arriving on the scene, they noticed several other vehicles' doors were opened.
They began searching for the suspects at nearby apartment complexes, eventually spotting two suspects hiding behind a vehicle at the West Town Manor Apartments. As the officers approached, the men took off running.
The first suspect was caught before he could even make it out of the complex, while the other one was caught soon after on Papermill near Weisgarber.
