Aug. 12 – Two Nashville minors were arrested Tuesday in Mount Juliet after stealing a vehicle.
Mount Juliet Police Department officers discovered a stolen vehicle on Golden Bear Gateway, near Interstate 40.
The stolen vehicle fled but was disabled after police installed spike strips. After the vehicle was disabled, the three suspects fled on foot, leading to a search effort involving K-9 units and a Tennessee Highway Patrol helicopter. “Thanks to the coordinated efforts of officers, two of the three suspects were apprehended shortly after the chase,” the Mount Juliet Police Department said in a press release. “Both suspects are young men from Nashville and are now in custody. They are being charged with the theft and subsequent chase. The car was stolen from the Hermitage area.”
The third suspect was not found during the search and detectives are currently pursuing leads regarding the suspect’s location.
The investigation is currently underway.
