Officers are actively searching for a convenience store burglary suspect. Two of the three suspects, including the suspect vehicle, have been apprehended after officers interrupted an in-progress burglary at Marathon Gas, at 15333 Lebanon Rd in Old Hickory. The third, remaining suspect, took off running towards Pin Oak and Garland Dr near Lady Nashville Dr in Hermitage.

Suspect Description:

White teen male, likely 14-17 years of age, wearing a white or yellow-colored hooded sweatshirt and dark-colored pants. The suspect could be wet and covered in mud.

It appears the teen suspects were targeting convenience stores that stocked vape pens and e-cigarettes. After forcing entry into the closed business, the suspects stole the vape pens and e-cigarettes. Officers also located two replica handguns in the suspects’ vehicle.
