Robbery reported on Westlawn Drive

A neighbor has reported that the following robbery took place last Thursday:
I live [on] Westlawn Drive and want to report a robbery to the association so members of the community can be aware of this activity and take caution.  The robbery took place on Thursday morning, October 29 between 9:10 am and 9:40 am (approximate time).  The burgler(s) entered through a small bathroom window and exited through a side door.

I have heard from two neighbors they saw suspicious activity last week - one in the evening and one at 7 a.m. in the morning.  Both occurances were on busy streets, Sloan and Murphy, respectively.
As always, please report any suspicious or criminal behavior you observe to the Metro Nashville Police Department at (615) 862-8600.
