NASHVILLE --- A robbery suspect is in custody after leading a Tennessee Highway Patrol Trooper on a high speed chase in Robertson County.
At approximately 2:54 a.m. (CST), Trooper Todd Pitts was advised by dispatch of an armed robbery at the BP gas station just off I-24 at exit 11 in Montgomery County. The BOLO report indicated that a suspect in a gray Dodge Durango had robbed the BP station at gunpoint.
Trooper Pitts made contact with the suspect vehicle at a MAPCO station just off the interstate at exit 24 in Robertson County. The suspect had just completed pumping gas at the station when Trooper Pitts motioned to the driver to stop so he could ask him some questions. Initially, the driver complied with a request from Trooper Pitts to see his license, but refused a request to turn off his ignition, and instead spun out and fled the scene.
