Suspect arrested after hole carved into business

Christopher Bilbrey Christopher Bilbrey

Police said they arrested the man responsible for creating a hole in the side of a south Nashville business in a burglary attempt early Tuesday morning.

A witness called police about a suspicious person parked behind a dry cleaning business at 4122 Nolensville Pike.         

When officers responded at 4:40 a.m., they discovered Christopher Bilbrey, 34, had backed a white Ford van next to a wall. 

Bilbrey ran but was quickly apprehended. 

Behind the van, officers observed a hole in the wall large enough for a person to enter the business. 

A hammer and a screw driver covered in dust consistent with the color of the brick wall were found inside the van, said police. 

Bilbrey, of Pitts Avenue in Old Hickory, told detectives he had stolen the van. 
Bilbrey, who has three previous theft convictions, is charged with burglary, possession of burglary tools, evading and resisting arrest.  He is being held on $20,000 bond.
