CRIME & SAFETY UPDATE from Metropolitan Nashv...

CRIME & SAFETY UPDATE from Metropolitan Nashville Police Department. February 28, 2018 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Officers assigned to the Juvenile Crime Reduction Task Force tonight arrested two 16-year-olds, one of them an alleged carjacker, and a 17-year-old who fled from them in a Toyota Camry that was stolen on Sunday from the 4100 block of Hillsboro Pike. Officer Benjamin Spees spotted the stolen Camry on Wedgewood Avenue near 12th Avenue South and attempted to follow it until unmarked support units could arrive in the area. However, the 16-year-old driver noticed Spees’ police car and fled. Given the weather conditions, Spees did not engage in a pursuit. A short time later, a Midtown Hills Precinct undercover detective saw the Camry in an alley near the 2100 block of 11th Avenue North. As officers approached, the three teens ran. They were all apprehended after a short foot pursuit. The 16-year-old driver of the Camry was already wanted for an armed carjacking that occurred at 1:10 a.m. on Sunday where a woman was robbed of her Nissan Sentra near 2000 Belcourt Avenue. That 16-year-old is being charged tonight with aggravated robbery, unlawful gun possession and vehicle theft. The two teens with him tonight are charged with joyriding. The carjacked Sentra was recovered at 9:20 a.m. Sunday after North Precinct Officer Raymond Heymann spotted it on 17th Avenue North. Two other 16-year-olds, a boy and a girl, were by themselves in the car and were arrested. He was charged with vehicle theft. She was charged with joyriding. The continuing investigation led to the identity of the 16-year-old alleged carjacker arrested tonight. In an unrelated case from Friday night, the Juvenile Crime Reduction Task Force stopped a van on Buena Vista Pike near Clarksville Pike for having an expired tag and an inoperable brake light. The 17-year-old driver, when asked whether anything illegal was in the vehicle, replied that there was a pistol. A .40 caliber semi-automatic pistol with an extended magazine containing 19 rounds was found underneath the seat along with a nine millimeter semi-automatic pistol loaded with 11 rounds. Both pistols had been reported stolen. Also in the car was a baggie containing 1.7 grams of marijuana. The 17-year-old was taken to juvenile detention and charged with multiple offenses. ###

In case you were wondering what was being built at 12th & Wedgewood, check out Mayor Barry's post: "We work on affordable housing every day, but it takes time to go from funding to fruition. So when plans are final and permits secured, putting the first shovel in the ground is a wonderful thing. This month, we did just that at 12th & Wedgewood, a formerly vacant Metro-owned lot that will soon be the home of our first private-public partnership for 160 units of workforce housing."
