Two men were taken into custody over the weekend in connection with separate violent home break-ins in Nashville that left a man with gunshot wounds.

Cedrick Earl Johnson, 22, was arrested by police, who say he, along with two accomplices, forced their way into a woman’s Creekwood Drive apartment on May 12 and robbed her a gunpoint.

Metro Police charged Johnson with aggravated robbery and aggravated kidnapping in the case. The victim was not hurt, according to reports.

For a June 3 robbery, police arrested Terry Dewayne Dickson, 25, for a case where police reported a victim came home and found Dickson burglarizing the property on Morningside Drive. When the victim attempted to flee he was allegedly shot in the back by Dickson.

Dickson is charged with attempted criminal homicide, theft and aggravated burglary.

The victim was treated at Vanderbilt and released.

Dickson, who has prior felony drug and assault convictions, is being held on $62,500 bond. Johnson, who has previous convictions for drug possession, vehicle theft and weapons possession, is being held in lieu of $570,000 bond.

I remember my home invasion and the police never took fingerprints. The officer told me I should move? I had also learned in the past that other officers had told the same thing, "You Should Move" to many other neighbors in East Nashville. This had also gone on for over 35 years.

My insurance agent asked who the detective was on my case. I said "I had none." He remarked "Another Dirty Police Department."

Protecting the on going Crack Market was more important protecting than the tax paying, law abiding citizens.

"Dickson is charged with attempted criminal homicide, theft and aggravated burglary."

Ok, so Dickson, who attempted murder, has a $62.5k bond while Johnson,
who is held for drug possession, vehicle theft and weapons possession, is being held for $570,000 bond.

Ah..."Staff Reporters"...ahhhh....do you see a question here ?!?
