The Cheatham County Sheriff’s Office responded to more than 30 calls at a Bearwallow Road home last year.

The Cheatham County Sheriff’s Office has set its sights on a Bearwallow Road home after the residence was the subject of more than 30 police calls in 2018.

The home, in the 1900 block of Bearwallow Road (Highway 249), has had multiple incidents on its property including overdoses, stolen vehicles and police foot pursuits, Lt. Shannon Heflin said.

“There’s all kinds of criminal activity coming from that residence,” Heflin said.

In the last year, there have been about four arrests at the home and multiple connected cases, Detective Ken Miller said.

When the country band Little Big Town’s trailer was stolen in August of 2018, it was seen at the home before it was later found elsewhere, Heflin said.

The sheriff’s office has been focusing on the home for about a year and a half, as neighbors have repeatedly complained about the residence during that time, he said.

“We’ve caught people inside vehicles on the property injecting heroin,” he said. “It has become a problem. I can see why neighbors see it as a nuisance.”

Deputies have informed the homeowner that the home is being watched and that the sheriff’s office is aware of all of the crime going on there, but those living there haven’t offered any cooperation, Heflin said.

“We spent a few weeks out there with surveillance ... and it kept on continuing,” he said.

While increased surveillance didn’t seem to help, media coverage seems to have helped decrease the incidents, he said.

“Any house where (residents) are having problems, we will do everything we can to stop it,” Heflin said. “We’re trying to make our community a safe place for everyone.”
