GOODLETTSVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Investigators credit a fingerprint with helping to track down the man suspected of stealing an estimated $14,260 in equipment from a Goodlettsville business.
Goodlettsville police responded on December 14, 2018 to a reported burglary at Bloodworth Photography on Rivergate Parkway.
There had been forced entry into the business and photography equipment was stolen, officers said.
Investigators said the TBI crime lab matched a fingerprint found at the scene to James Roe.
Police said they later located some of the stolen items at a pawn shop where video footage showed Cody Moran, a co-defendent in the case, selling some of the equipment for $500.
Investigators learned Moran had been taken into custody April 15, so they went to speak with him at the Hill Detention Center and said he told them Roe had given him the stolen equipment and asked him to sell it because he did not have an ID.
Roe was taken into custody Wednesday on a burglary charge.
