HENDERSON COUNTY, Tenn. — The man involved in a deadly run-in with a Madison County deputy is a suspect in a burglary spree. Robert Asperanti, a passenger in the car when Dillon McGee was fatally shot in September, is now charged in a string of Henderson County burglaries. Deputies said a church had its doors torn open during a burglary. Henderson County residents said they are surprised. “That’s like an all-time low to me, because I mean that’s God’s house that should be all respect,” Henderson County Deputies said they took $7,000 worth of items. “Musical instruments, sound boards, mixers, microphones,” Captain Tracey Grisham with the Henderson County Sheriff’s Department said. Investigators said that was just the beginning of a string of burglaries nearby. Days later, they said an elderly woman’s home was vandalized. “The one home that was broken into where the coins were taken it was left, they called it ransacked, a lot of damage there,” Grisham said. Some residents said they think damaging the home is disrespectful. “There’s no point in vandalizing someone’s home. I mean, I guess if you’re looking for something to take but there’s not point in ransacking and tearing stuff down and breaking everything,” resident Deanta Pearson said. Deputies said the third burglary happened on Melton Road. They said the man just next door was involved. Robert Aspiranti faces numerous burglary, theft and vandalism charges. “Things from all three places found in his home. He knew where to find different things. We have video from one of the pawn shops where he actually brought part of the merchandise in,” Grisham said. Robert’s brother, Keith has also been charged in the church burglary. He is being held in Madison County on another charge. Investigators need help finding the third suspect, Osha Rogers.
