Suspect arrested in string of church parking lot burglaries
News


Hamblen County deputies arrested a man accused of a sting of auto burglaries in church parking lots.

Detectives arrested Jason E. Harris, 36, of Morristown Friday morning, after a victim's stolen credit card was linked back to Harris. When investigators arrested Harris at his home on Bethesda Road, they noticed a burn pile nearby with items that belonged to several other victims.

Officials said Harris confessed to the crimes, and authorities believe that he stole to fuel his drug habit.

The sheriff's office charged Harris with three counts of auto burglary and three counts of theft.

Harris' criminal history dates back to 1998, with charges like drug possession, evading arrest, escape, and theft of property.
