Metro Nashville Police are searching for two men connected to an overnight break-in and said these same suspects could be behind several crimes.

Detectives said the burglars broke in through the front door of the Rent-a-Center on the 3700 block of Nolensville Road around 1:45 a.m. Wednesday.

“When we got here, the glass was pried open and, as you can see, the glass isn’t broken or anything,” said James Garland, Rent-a-Center district manager. “They just came in, pried it open and grabbed a couple of TVs and ran out the door.”

They were able to grab two TVs from a wall and left in a white van. One of the TVs was dropped on the ground outside and left there.

Police believe the same men also hit a couple of liquor stores on Richards Road and Murfreesboro Pike earlier this week. It appears the men wore the same outfits for the crimes.

“It kind of makes you think about putting some better gates up so they can’t get into the stores as easy,” Garland said.

According to police, the white van seen in surveillance footage at the Green Hills Pharmacy burglary last week is believed to be connected to this break-in.

Business owners are working with police to catch the suspects.

“They are going to come back by and get a copy of the tape of the people that we saw in the video, and they think they have a good line of who’s doing them,” Garland said.

Wednesday evening, police identified the suspects in the liquor store break-ins as 50-year-old Roger Black and 52-year-old William Black.

Police have charged the brothers with multiple counts of burglary, theft and vandalism in the liquor store break-ins. They are also under investigation in connection to the other burglaries.

Roger and William Black are currently at-large. Police said efforts to locate them Wednesday were unsuccessful.

Anyone with information about these men are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463.

Roger Black is currently on parole and has multiple conviction in Davidson, Cumberland and Bledsoe counties. William Black has multiple convictions for burglary, aggravated assault and escape in Davidson County.
