NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Authorities say three people have been arrested in connection with a string of car burglaries in Middle Tennessee.

The Tennessean reports (https://tnne.ws/1piQdCP ) that 18-year-old Tyler Butler, of Gallatin, and a 16-year-old juvenile were arrested Tuesday.

Authorities say 18-year-old Dakota Emler, of Nashville, was arrested Wednesday. Butler and Emler are each charged with eight counts of burglary and four counts of theft under $500.

Gallatin Police Department spokesman Bill Storment said Friday that the arrests have helped the department solve 27 auto burglaries in Gallatin dating back to January.
