28-year-old Jamie Pirtle was charged with burglary of a motor vehicle after he was discovered inside a Subaru Outback without permission from the owner at the Deerfield Apartment complex.
On November 12th, Metro Nashville Police Officer Rex Engelbert was dispatched to the Deerfield Apartments located at 945 Village Hills Drive in reference to car burglaries and disorderly conduct. When Officer Engelbert arrived, he found Jamie Pirtle inside a 2018 blue Subaru Outback.
According to the affidavit, Pirtle matched the description given for a subject “trying car door handles” in the Deerfield Apartment complex parking lot. Kirk Hill, the owner of the vehicle, approached and Engelbert asked if he had given Pirtle access to his vehicle to which he responded, “What! No!” Jamie Pirtle could not explain what he was doing in Hill’s vehicle and was taken into custody.
Jamie Pirtle was arrested and charged with burglary of a motor vehicle. He is currently jailed in lieu of a $5,000 bond.
