Seven teenagers arrested in Hendersonville carjackings, crime spree

HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn (WKRN) – Hendersonville Police have arrested seven teenagers for two carjackings and more than 30 car burglaries. They held a rare Friday night news conference to share details of the investigation.

For three weeks, detectives from across Middle Tennessee have been working together on the case. They traveled as far as Florida to catch one of the suspects.

“These persons that we’re dealing with have a reckless disregard and disrespect for others in our community,” said Lt. Scott Ryan of the Hendersonville Police Department. “We’re not going to stand for that. We’re going to dump our resources into it and make it stop.”

The latest arrests came Friday afternoon. Two teens were captured in Nashville, ages 14 and 16, for a carjacking on June 6.  A woman was held at gunpoint while three suspects stole her car and belongings.

Another carjacking happened June 7.  A man was coming home from work when

Bessemer teen charged in 3-day Hueytown crime spree

 

A Bessemer teen is facing multiple charges after lawmen say he carried out a three-day crime spree in Hueytown.

Hueytown Police Chief Chuck Hagler said the 17-year-old suspect is charged with two counts of burglary from a residence, one count each for theft of property from a residence, theft of a motor vehicle, and unlawful breaking and entering of a vehicle.

The break-ins happened between June 13 and June 16 in the Hueytown’s Virginia Mines area. The teen is charged as a juvenile, so his name is not being released.

Hagler said the investigation was a team effort of patrol officers, special enforcement officers and detectives, all of whom contributed to cracking the case. A key piece of evidence, he said, was a fingerprint obtained by one of the department’s evidence technicians.

“Lifting prints is way harder than what people see on
