19-year-old Joshua Gupton was jailed this weekend on an outstanding warrant from June, charging him with aggravated criminal trespass. Metro Nashville Police initially responded to the home of Urjita Khera when she reported she was lying on her couch when she heard someone enter her residence through the side window of her home. When she stood up, it spooked the intruder, and they fled, closing the window behind them. Luckily, she had recently cleaned the windows, and investigators were able to pull a fresh set of prints from the glass. They came back to Joshua Upton, who had his spring on file from a juvenile arrest history of theft and residential burglaries. His home is only 1.2 miles from the victim’s residence, and her front door camera captures him walking up the front stairs and around the side of the home to the window.
