Update: Suspect Identified http://wp.me/p2PLBh-yc
Mt. Juliet, Tenn. – A man, armed with a handgun, attempted to rob a person in the parking lot of Walmart this afternoon. Around 2:40 p.m. on Tuesday, February 16, 2016, officers were summoned to Walmart, located at 300 Pleasant Grove Road, in reference to an attempted armed robbery that occurred in the parking lot 10 minutes prior to police being notified.
Investigation revealed that a skinny white male in his 20’s, approximately 5’9″ tall, with short brown hair, and wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, pulled a gun out and demanded the wallet of a adult man in the parking lot. The victim did not comply, and the suspect fled the parking lot in a maroon 2008 Mercy Grand Marquis. The vehicle used by the suspect matches the description of a vehicle that was stolen from the Bar-b-cutie parking lot on February 13, 2016 after the owner left the keys in the car.
