East Ridge property managers hold suspected trespasser at gun point

Posted: Updated:

EAST RIDGE, TN. (WRCB) -- A would-be burglar is behind bars Thursday night, thanks to two property managers.

Police say a witness observed 45-year-old Thomas Richard Sheppard breaking into a home on Glen Errol Way in East Ridge Thursday evening.

The witness called the property managers, who stopped Sheppard, holding him at gunpoint until police arrived.

Sheppard was taken into custody without incident.

Investigators say Sheppard was recently evicted from the residence, which is currently vacant.

He is charged with aggravated criminal trespass.

According to court records, East Ridge police arrested Sheppard earlier this year on charges of fraudulent use of a credit card.
