A Greeneville man was arrested early Monday afternoon and charged with aggravated burglary and other offenses, only a few hours after the residential burglary occurred.
Jonathan R. Fellers, 31, of 315 Juniper St., is also charged with theft over $1,000 but less than $10,000, felony evading arrest, evading arrest and driving on a suspended license.
He is being held in the Greene County Detention Center.
Fellers was taken into custody in connection with a burglary before noon Monday in the 2100 block of Old Snapps Ferry Road, sheriff's Deputy Aaron Spears said in a report.
Deputies and Greeneville police attempted to stop his car shortly before 2 p.m. Monday, and Fellers did not immediately pull over. He was taken into custody after a "brief pursuit," the report said.
About noon Monday, deputies responded to a burglary alarm at the Old Snapps Ferry Road house.
The victim was in the driveway when deputies arrived and told deputies that his house had been broken into, the report said.
The suspect threw a rock from the driveway through a glass bedroom door to gain entry, the report said.
Stolen were 12 boxes of Premier designer jewelry, a bottle of Ralph Lauren perfume, and a 42-inch LG flat-screen television.
The television taken in the burglary was recovered in the trunk of Fellers' car, the report said.
The jewelry was recovered a short time later at a house on Acton Court in Greeneville, the report said.
The TV is valued at $712. The jewelry is worth $500, and the perfume is valued at $30.
Damage to the double-pane glass door in the home totals $1,800, the report said.
Fellers was held on $32,000 bond pending a first scheduled General Sessions Court appearance on Wednesday.
