MARYVILLE (WATE) - The Blount County Sheriff's Office says four people have been charged in a string of 17 residential burglaries. The arrests were the result of a nearly month long joint investigation by BCSO, the Maryville and Alcoa police departments and the Knox County Sheriff's Office.

Jeremy Lee Click, 27, is charged with 10 counts of aggravated burglary. Stephen Jefferson Davis, 26, is charged with one count of aggravated burglary and one count of theft of property. Vanessa Leeann Hannah, 26, is charged with one count of theft of property. Heaven Kindle Jenkins, 22, is charged with two counts of theft of property and a misdemeanor violation of probation.

Sheriff James Lee Berrong says the investigation began several weeks ago after a Maryville police detective received information linking the four suspects to 17 burglaries in Alcoa, Maryville and in Blount County.

Detectives from all four agencies worked together to develop leads on other burglaries.

Click and Hannah were arrested on October 19, while Davis and Jenkins were arrested on October 20.

The Knox County Sheriff's Office obtained a search warrant for a residence on Neubert Springs Road and search the home Thursday night. Additional charges could be forthcoming.

Berrong says the suspects targeted jewelry and firearms. Some of the stolen jewelry and one firearm have been recovered at jewelry stores and pawn shops.
