Two men flee from MJPD
Tuesday, January 6, 2015

Staff Reports

Two men fled from police officers after a routine traffic stop early New Year’s morning. 

A dark blue Honda Civic was going 75 mph in a 45 mph zone on N. Mt. Juliet Road. The driver stopped, but was evasive with officers when questioned. The officer called for assistance, and when the backup officer arrived, the car sped off. They led officers on a chase, eventually ending at Forest View Apartments on Belinda Parkway. The driver and passenger jumped out of the car and ran away. A perimeter of officers was established, but the two men were not found. 

Officers discovered two revolvers, a hunting-style face mask, dark blue bandanna, gloves, live ammunition, spent ammunition shell casings, and multiple open and unopened beer bottles in the suspect vehicle.

The driver was described as a Hispanic male in his early 20’s wearing a red sweat shirt, blue jeans, and red/black ball cap. There is not a description for the passenger, except that he was male.

The investigation is ongoing, and officers are currently looking at all the available evidence to potentially identify the two unknown men that fled.

If anyone has a feeling that they possibly known the suspects responsible for this crime, they are encouraged to call the Mt. Juliet Police Department at (615) 754-2550. Information can also be given anonymously by calling (615) 754-TIPS (8477) or via the Mt. Juliet Police Department website at http://www.mjpd.org/ .

A concept plan for a 16-home subdivision off of Davis Drive was the only new item approved at the planning commission Thursday night. 

The site is at 609 Davis Drive and sits on 8.78 acres. There will be 1.93 units per acre, and there will be a 1.59 acre open space for the residents. The lots will vary in size from .34 acres to .6 acres.  All existing trees six inches or greater will be preserved on the site. All mature canopy trees in the open space will preserved as well. 

There will be 5-foot sidewalks along one side of the new proposed street into the neighborhood, plus some sidewalk along the frontage of Davis Drive.

The development will have to come back again in front of the planning commission next month, as this was just a concept plan.
