HUNTSVILLE, Tenn. — The Scott County Sheriff’s Department is seeking the public’s help solving a burglary that occurred in the Helenwood community Wednesday, May 22.
According to a report released by the Sheriff’s Department, the burglary occurred on Skyview Drive — near the Scott County Visitors Center — sometime around 2 p.m. Wednesday.
