Rifle ad 300 marchWhen officers arrived they found several juveniles and one of the juveniles was carrying a handgun. When police ran the the serial number on the gun it came up as one of the ten guns stolen from White House Pawn. ​

One 15 year old male juvenile has been taken into custody but has yet to be charged, however police say the teen made statements as to his involvement in the burglary.

It’s great when local agencies can work together in a case like this and it’s a statement to the professionalism and training of Metro Nashville Police, said White House Police Chief Pat Brady. ​

Brady declined comment on the disposition of the other nine weapons siting an ongoing investigation.​

It is standard procedure for authorities not to release names of juvenile suspects.

Arson Blamed For Fire At Old Greenbrier Wood Mill 

FullSizeRender (5)Officials say a 30 by 40 foot structure located at North Star Lumber was deliberately set on fire. The facility is located at 2275 South Mt Pleasant rd in Greenbrier. MAP

Officials tell Smokey the facility has been closed for about ten years. The facility sits far off the main road and is surrounded by trees making it impossible to see from the street.

The call came into 911 at 3:23am Saturday morning. Fire crews from Millersville, White House and Greenbrier all responded to the fire. The 2000 foot driveway leading up to the facility is in poor condition which made it problematic for anything less than four wheel drive vehicles to access the structure.

The small structure is a total loss.

The Robertson County Sheriff’s Office will be in charge of the investigation.

Accident On I-24 E Takes One Life Friday

One lane of I-24 was closed this afternoon due to a fatal accident that occurred around mile marker 23 in Robertson County. This accident involved one vehicle with only one occupant, the driver, 18 year old Melissa Jusino of Clarksville.

It is unknown what caused the accident but the Tennessee Highway Patrol is currently investigating. Investigators estimate Melissa’s speed to be about 70 MPH so speed was not a factor. Police are also saying they don’t believe drugs or alcohol were a factor either.  A blood test was requested but that is standard procedure in a fatal crash.

What we do know is that  the 2007 Honda Civic Jusino was driving left the roadway and impacted a bridge support at the Jack Teasley overpass on I24. (Location Of Wreck) After leaving the roadway the driver drifted left of the guardrail traveling about 60 to 70 feet before impacting the bridge support.

Smokey’s thoughts and prayers go out to the family of the person that lost their life.

The incident occurred just after 12:30am. According to officials, the rig was hauling charcoal. The driver was not injured.

Pleasant View Fire, Robertson County Emergency Management Agency and the Tennessee Highway Patrol responded to the scene. I24 East was reduced to one lane as crews put out the fire. I24 West was not affected.

AR15 Rifle Stolen From Millersville Police Vehicle

A police issued AR15 rifle was stolen from a Millersville police vehicle over the weekend. Between the hours of 10:00pm, March 22 and 8:26 am, March 23, 2015 someone burglarized the Millersville Police patrol car while it was parked in the Mansker Farms area in Hendersonville.

police Chevy TahoeThe burglar was able to make entry into the vehicle without causing any damage. An AR15 223 Semi Automatic brushmaster stored in the rear deck of the fully marked Chevy Tahoe (like the one pictured right) was stolen in the burglary, according to Millersville police Chief David Hindman.

The Hendersonville Police Department is requesting anyone living in the Mansker Farms area that may have seen anything or anyone suspicious to contact the Hendersonville Police Department or Hendersonville Crime Stoppers.

Back in July of 2013, a Greenbrier police car was broken into and an AR15 Semi Automatic rifle and ammunition were taken. The cruiser was parked at the officers home at Piccadilly Apartments on Windsor Green Boulevard in Goodlettsville, TN which is in Davidson county. In that case the front passenger side window was broken out to gain access to the trunk where the weapon was stored.  Several other police cruisers were being burglarized around that same time in Nashville back in 2013.

Springfield arms permit classesWithin a three day period back in 2013, five Metro Police vehicles, one Davidson County Sheriff’s Office car, one Metro Parks Police car and one Greenbrier Police car were burglarized while parked in various Davidson County neighborhoods. Some weapons and assorted other law enforcement equipment were taken. Full Story. The investigation back in 2013 led to the recovery of some of the equipment but no suspects in this Sunday’s burglary have been identified.

Anyone with information regarding this crime is encouraged to call Hendersonville Crime Stoppers at 615-573-5400. Tips can also be submitted by text to the number 274637 (crimes) using keyword TIPHPD.
