They Strike Again, Two In Custody and Police Seek A Third
UPDATE: (see video below)
Two suspects wanted in connection to a robbery Friday at the Deerfield Inn are now in custody, Steven Nabi and Kaygen Geraci. According to police the Nabi and a third suspect made a second attempt to rob victims at the Dearfield Inn, the same hotel as Fridays victim. The suspects were apparently using the hotel as a base of operation luring victims and then robbing them. The first victim from Florida was lured to the Deerfield Inn with the prospect of some kind of “party and other activities” according to Greenbrier police.
The second incident involved two victims Monday evening around 6:00PM at the same hotel. Police are not sure what the victims were told to lure them to the hotel but the result was the same, they were robbed. In the first robbery the victims wallet was taken, in the second it was keys, wallets and cell phones, according to Greenbrier Mayor Billy Wilson. In the case of the second robbery police are listing Steven Nabi (in custody) and another man identified as 27-year-old Kevin Lamar Williams as suspects.
Greenbrier police are asking for the public’s help in locating suspect Kevin Lamar Williams, pictured left. If you see Kevin or have information on his whereabouts call the Robertson County Dispatch Center at 615-384-4911. The female (Kaygen Geraci 22) was not listed as a suspect in the second robbery. Shortly after the second robbery, Geraci was seen at a gas station near by in a vehicle (Ford Explorer) matching the discretion provided by Fridays victim and was taken into custody. On a lead police found Nabi at a residence on Highway 41, according to Wilson.
Police believe there could be other victims that may be reluctant to come forward. Greenbrier Mayor Billy Wilson talked with Smokey about the strange crime spree and says “If you’re a victim, call me”. iPhone/iPad users click on top photo(S) to play video
