Suspect Robert Shegog, 35, of Bilbro Avenue in Murfreesboro, was charged with four counts each of burglary, theft and vandalism by Detective Brian Gonzales. Shegog was accused in the following store burglaries:

Shegog was a suspect in burglaries in Murfreesboro and Rutherford County and surrounding counties. Shelbyville Police identified him through a vehicle tag.

He is being held on bond at Rutherford County Adult Detention Center while awaiting a hearing Thursday in General Sessions Court.
Additional charges may be pending, Gonzales said.
