23-year-old James Hill was charged with burglary of a motor vehicle after police say he was caught rummaging through someone’s vehicle and attempted to run away.

On December 7th, Clarksville Police Officer Godwin responded to a call at 1901 Old Russellville Pike regarding a motor vehicle burglary. Upon arrival, contact was made with Olasubomi Bashorun, who stated that he went outside to start his vehicle and discovered James Hill rummaging inside his work vehicle with a flashlight. When he confronted James, he attempted to flee but was quickly caught and brought back to the residence to await police.
