Williamson County, Tennessee (WTVF) — Brand new body camera footage shows the exact moment when an agent stopped a suspected carjacker.
Everything fell on Tuesday afternoon on Interstate 840 in Williamson County.
Smyrna police were dispatched to the 1300 block of Hazelwood Drive on Tuesday in response to a carjacking. Three people surrounded the victim’s car while the victim was looking at the trunk. At least one was wielding a firearm.
The suspect then stole the red 2012 Infiniti G37 vehicle and drove it away.
Then, at 11:33 am, police were dispatched to 1800 blocks on Almaville Road in response to another carjacking. The same three suspects, at least one wielding a firearm, re-enclosed the vehicle.
Then they stole the vehicle, the silver 2019 Infiniti QX50 SUV.
The Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office, the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office, and the Tennessee Highway Patrol were all involved in the search for the suspect.
With the helicopter in the air, WCSO found a red Infiniti on the I-840. WCSO Deputy Sergeant Steve Mitchell was waiting on the stopstick — his body camera is spinning.
When the stolen red infinity approached Mitchell on the I-840, he deployed a stopstick. The stolen car suspect tried to avoid the spikes by driving above the median.
“Unfortunately for them, fortunately for us, they couldn’t do that and got to the top of the berm in the center of the 840,” said the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office. Deputy Chief Mark Elrod said.
Mitchell ran in the car to a suspect who was stuck at the median in search of a backup about four minutes away.
The passengers in the car ran away. The driver, Christian Cooke, was arrested by WCSO.
Even after Cook was detained, the stolen SUV with two other Carjack suspects had not yet been discovered.
Cameron Nash and Altavius Lee were soon captured by THP in Henderson County.
All three suspects were charged with two carjackings, one felony mission possession of firearms, and two theft charges.
Cook and Nash were booked at the Rutherford County Adult Detention Center.
Lee was taken to Henderson County Jail, where he drove without a license, avoided arrest, and faced additional charges of possessing Schedule 6 drugs. He has been detained with a $ 5,000 deposit and is on hold for Smyrna police.
“It’s always a good feeling when we can do good and drive away the bad,” Elrod said.
