Bungled Heist

After a local bungled heist, five suspects were being interviewed by the police.

Eventually the police managed to get a confession.

Below is a summary of their statements and it turns out that exactly 5 of these statements were true.

Would you make a good detective, try and work out who committed the crime?

Adrian said:
It wasn't Barry
It was Cedric

Barry said:
It wasn't Adrian
It was Derek

Cedric said:
It wasn't Derek
It wasn't Barry

Derek said:
It wasn't Eric
It was Adrian

Eric said:
It wasn't Cedric
It was Derek

Answer: Eric committed the crime.

If we assume that Adrian was the culprit we can see that there would be 6 true statements, so it can't be Adrian.

We can repeat this will all five suspects and quickly see that only Eric being the culprit would result in exactly 5 statements being true.
