JACKSON – Special Agents from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation have obtained indictments for a Gibson County man accused in connection to a violent burglary at a home in Trenton.
On January 17th, at the request of 28th District Attorney General Garry Brown, TBI Special Agents began investigating a burglary that occurred the same day at a home on Twin Creek Road in Trenton. During the course of the investigation, Agents, working alongside investigators from the Gibson County Sheriff’s Department, developed information that Justin Schriener and Autumn White-Smith broke into the victim’s home and attempted to rob him at knifepoint. A struggle ensued, during which the victim sustained multiple stab wounds from which he has since recovered.
On Monday, the Gibson County Grand Jury returned indictments for Schriener, charging the 31-year-old Trenton man with one count of Especially Aggravated Burglary, one count of Attempted Especially Aggravated Robbery, and one count of Tampering with Evidence. Authorities in Gibson County previously charged White-Smith with Accessory After the Fact and Tampering with Evidence. Schriener is currently incarcerated in Kentucky on unrelated charges.
