Following the crash, the teen is suspected of burglarizing several homes and stole his parents’ vehicle in an attempt to evade authorities, Kirby said.

Four alleged accomplices – two males and two females – believed to be connected to earlier burglaries and car thefts were arrested Wednesday. The males also are accused in a county shooting Monday night and face attempted murder charges, Kirby said. Details were not released.

Hendersonville cracks down on juvenile crime spree

HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – An unprecedented number of teens have been arrested for serious crimes in Hendersonville, ranging from car burglaries to aggravated robbery.

The juvenile crime wave started at the end of May, according to police, and it is getting more serious. It also appears most of the juveniles are from Nashville, and most of them have guns that are often stolen.

The police chief, the mayor, and prosecutor held a news conference Wednesday to talk about what’s going on and send a message that teens arrested for serious crimes will be locked up and turned over to adult court whenever possible.

Investigators suspect 42 people are behind the crime wave, according to Detective Sgt. Jim Vaughn. So far they’ve arrested 36 young people ranging in age from 13 to 20.

“They’re very dangerous. They don’t mind hurting you,” said Chief Mickey Miller.

HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – An unprecedented number of teens have been arrested for serious crimes in Hendersonville, ranging from car burglaries to aggravated robbery.

“I have not seen the almost constant amount of juveniles committing very serious crimes and frequency of which we’ve seen it occur,” said Assistant District Attorney Eric Mauldin.

No Clear Link Between Juvenile Crime Spree, Legal Reforms

That aspect of the reforms has been a hindrance to police officers and prosecutors, Carino said, adding that the law enforcers would like to have more latitude, on a case by case basis, to transfer or detain.

“We are not talking about a large percentage of kids… there’s a small group of kids that get involved in crimes across this state that pose a threat.” Carino said.

Predictably, the discretionary juvenile-to-adult court transfers have plummeted, dropping from 45 in fiscal 2012, to 6 in fiscal 2017.

Lawlor, Malloy’s crime guru, reiterated that most kids transferred to adult court, with the exception of the few charged with the most violent offenses, received
