Message from Metro Police Community Affairs Officer about recent crime activity

There have been a dozen plus robberies in East Nashville in the lastcouple of weeks. Many are concentrated in the lower East Nashville area(Chapel/Eastland, Carter/Riverside, Golf/Greenfield, S.11th, S.12th, Russell St., Calvin St., etc.).

The suspects have approached pedestrians, brandishing firearms - usually handguns. Usually, they flee in a vehicle. Vehicle descriptions vary slightly from a silver Jeep Cherokee to a white Jeep Cherokee and a beige to whitish MercuryMarquis. If vehicles resembling these cars are seen, please report to MPD.

Numerous East Precinct resources, as in all of them, are outlooking for the suspects. Folks are being robbed while walking, leaving their vehicles or going into their homes, so we should consider the suspects dangerous.

Tell your friends and neighbors to be on guard.
