A Coffee County man started off the new year by victimizing Warren County residents.  

Robert Brian Twogood, 36, whose address was listed as Beechgrove, has been charged with theft of a motor vehicle, two counts of burglary of a vehicle and fraudulent use of a credit card. Additional charges are pending. He was booked into Warren County Jail under a $25,000 bond. 

According to information released by McMinnville Police Department, a resident on Hill Street got the ball rolling toward an arrest when he reported the theft of his vehicle.

“On Jan. 5, 2020 at approximately 5:31 a.m., police responded to a residence located on Hill Street in McMinnville in reference to a stolen vehicle,” said McMinnville Police Capt. Nichole Mosley. “The victim came out to go to work and noticed his vehicle was missing.”

The vehicle was entered into the system as stolen. When the information was dispatched to surrounding counties, the whereabouts of the vehicle was discovered within hours. 

“At approximately 9:14 a.m., a Coffee County deputy notified McMinnville Police Department that he had located the stolen vehicle and the driver. The suspect was identified as 36-year-old Robert Brian Twogood of Beechgrove, Tenn.”

Discovered in a search of the vehicle were numerous pieces of property reportedly taken in the areas of Hill Street, North Spring Street and Sparta Street after multiple victims also reported waking up to find their vehicles and outbuildings had been burglarized.

McMinnville Police Department is asking citizens in the area of Hill, North Spring and Sparta streets to contact McMinnville Police Det. Sgt. Todd Rowland at 473-3386 if they also had items taken in the timeframe of Jan. 5.
