Suspected Johnson City burglar caught after foot chase


A suspected burglar was spotted by police shortly after a homeowner called officers about a burglary in progress in Johnson City.

Robert L. Rose, 27, is charged with aggravated robbery and evading arrest, according to a report from Washington County TN Sheriff Ed Graybeal.

Deputies arrived at a home in the 300 block of Rockingham Road following the call for help and saw Rose coming out of a wooded area. He was taken into custody after a brief foot chase, the report said.

He is currently being held on an $11,000 bond and is scheduled to be arraigned in Sessions Court on Wednesday.
