Bradley County Man Involved In Numerous Burglaries Gets Lengthy Federal Prison Sentence

Monday, March 11, 2013

A Bradley County man who has been involved in a number of burglaries was given a lengthy federal prison sentence on Monday.

Timothy Christopher Phillips, 34, was ruled an armed career criminal, which carries a mandatory 15-year sentence.

He got a consecutive 15 months on a prior revocation in the appearance before Judge Sandy Mattice.

An investigation by property crimes detectives for the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office in January of last year led to the arrest of Phillips for home burglaries occurring since early December.

The case, ongoing for over a month, took a turn when detectives discovered a Nintendo gaming system and associated games sold to a business on Treasury Drive matched the serial number of a system stolen from Willbrook Circle. An examination of records pertaining to the sale identified Phillips as the person in possession of the stolen property when it was sold.

A subsequent investigation resulted in consent to search Phillips' residence on South Lee Highway. Detectives found property there from that burglary and three others.

Phillips is charged with two counts each of aggravated burglary and theft over $1,000. Detectives had been able to clear these burglaries:

• 200 block of Turning Leaf Trail on Dec. 7
• 900 block of Tri Circle on Dec. 21
• 200 block of Pebble Ridge Drive on Dec. 30
• 100 block of Wilbrook Circle on Jan.9

Several thousand dollars of stolen property, including a handgun, medications, jewelry, cell phones, computers and other electronics were recovered from Phillips’ residence. Property that was identified through theft reports has been returned to owners.
