Robbery Arrests

As a result of the cooperative efforts of the Hendersonville Police Department, Metro Nashville Police Department and the Gallatin Police Department, four suspected robbers have been taken off the streets.

On January 27, 2015 shortly after 8:30 PM, Hendersonville Police received information of a robbery that had just occurred at a Kangaroo Express Market in Gallatin, TN. Following this information, a Hendersonville FLEX Officer observed a matching vehicle and suspects exhibiting suspicious behavior near a Hendersonville market.

Hendersonville patrol units stopped the vehicle and subsequent investigation led to the arrest of the four occupants for Armed Robbery. The same four have been identified as suspects in the prior robbery of Exxon in Hendersonville on January 22, and each has been charged with Armed Robbery for that incident as well.

As a result of continued investigation, additional evidence has been discovered which incriminates this same group of arrestees in multiple armed robberies in the Metro Nashville jurisdiction.  Additional charges are expected.
