MORRISTOWN (WATE) - A traffic stop in Morristown led officers to arrest a suspect in around 10 burglaries and a woman who was with him.

The incident began when a detective saw a small pickup truck that seemed suspicious pull out of Fairfield Baptist Church.

While the detective stopped the truck, officers were sent to a burglary next to the traffic stop on Copeland Drive.

Property from that burglary was recovered in the truck and the two people inside, Erik Crockett and Ashley Lunsford, were taken into custody.

Further investigation led detectives to name Crockett as a suspect in the other burglaries, which were also in that area.
