Staff Reports

Mt. Juliet Police are looking for a suspicious car that ran from police Sunday evening. 

Around 8:20 p.m., a MJPD officer noticed that a car was parked in an odd manner in front of Nick’s Market located at 13260 Lebanon Road, which has been known for robberies. The officer observed a white male with his hand tucked in his waistband as if he was holding something. The car sped away when approached, leading the officer on chase down Lebanon Road, and then onto Springmont Boulevard where the suspect threw a loaded handgun out of the car window. 

The chase went back out onto Lebanon Road and into Hermitage, but was called off on concerns of safety for the public. 

No arrests have been made. MJPD is looking for a 2004-2008 Silver Chevrolet Malibu that had blacked out wheels because it was missing all the hub caps. The car had a temporary license tag and damage to the driver side front fender. The driver was described as a late 20s-mid 30s black male with dark complexion, stocky build and dread lock style hair. The passenger was only described as a white male wearing a grey sweatshirt. 

 Anyone with any information regarding this crime is 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 .
