Four suspects remain in custody today following Wednesday’s home invasion robbery in the Highlands at Ladd Park subdivision.
Maurice Chapman, 26, of Nashville, Emily Faulkner, 20, of Murfreesboro, Mario Flores, 26, of Nashville and Keyona Newell, 29, of Madison have all been charged with aggravated robbery, according to Franklin police.
Each is being held on a $250,000 bond and will be in General Sessions court March 13 at 1 p.m. Additional charges are pending, according to Sgt. Charlie Warner.
Franklin detectives are working to identify a fifth suspect in the case.
At 10 a.m. yesterday morning, Franklin police were dispatched to 138 Grigsby in The Highlands at Ladd Park to respond to a report of a home invasion that had just occurred.
A male resident at the home was getting out of the shower when he was surprised by two men and two women who held him at gunpoint while they tied him up.
The suspects stole several guns, a television and other valuables before fleeing the home. That is when the victim was able to go to a neighbor’s home for help.
Shortly after the report, a Williamson County detective spotted suspects matching the description provided by the victim traveling in a white van on I-65 northbound in Brentwood.
The driver of the van led Brentwood police and the Williamson County detective on a pursuit into south Nashville where a Metro police helicopter helped to lead officers to four of the five suspects after the van crashed at the Prestige Pointe Apartments.
The victim and suspects in this case are not acquainted with one another. Detectives, however, have determined that the home was not randomly chosen, but that this home was specifically targeted.
Chief David Rahinsky credits the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office, Brentwood, and Metro Police for the quick capture, calling the arrest a great example of inter-agency teamwork.
