Convicted Burglar Arrested After Hiding in the Ceiling of East Nashville Pizza Restaurant

East Precinct officers and members of the Special Response Team this morning arrested convicted burglar Robert Dowell, 34, after he broke into BoomBozz Pizza Restaurant on Russell Street and then hid in the ceiling in an effort to avoid detection.

Officers responded to a burglar alarm at the restaurant at 3:14 a.m. They saw a man at the cash register in the bar area and gave him directions to exit and surrender. He did not comply. Upon entering, officers saw a footprint on a countertop and ceiling tiles that appeared to have been moved. The Special Response Team was called and used a camera to systematically search the ceiling. Dowell was found lying on pipes and ultimately obeyed orders to come down.

Dowell is charged with burglary and is being held in lieu of $50,000 bond. He was convicted of multiple counts of burglary in 2017 and received concurrent four-year sentences.
