WCSO, Metro Nashville Recapture Suspected Wilson Co. Felon who Fled Nashville Hospital

WCSO, Metro Nashville Recapture Suspected Wilson Co. Felon who Fled Nashville Hospital

 Early this morning, Wilson County Sheriff’s Office detectives and Metro Nashville Police Narcotics Detectives recaptured a suspected felon wanted on numerous charges in Wilson County who apparently walked out of a Nashville hospital during a shift change Monday.

WCSO arrested 36-year-old old Homero Quintanilla Navarro of 5001 Saundersville Road just before 1 a.m. today in the Antioch area of Nashville. WCSO detectives aided by Metro Narcotics detectives located Navarro while checking various locations the subject was believed to have frequented. He was taken into custody without incident at a motel in Antioch near Interstate 24. He was booked into Wilson County Correctional Department just after midnight, where he is currently being held without bond pending a hearing on his charges.

“We are greatly relieved to have this suspect back in our custody,” said WCSO Chief Deputy Mike Owens. “We appreciate the Metro Narcotics detectives who assisted us with the capture of this suspect. We also appreciate the help of the media for getting the word out and his photograph. Our Number One priority has been, as always, to keep the citizens, especially those deeply affected by this case, safe.”

Navarro was wanted in connection with a series of events including a serious car crash, home invasion and burglary in neighborhoods near his home and assaulting WCSO deputies Sunday. Upon his arrest, he was immediately taken to Vanderbilt University Hospital Emergency Room under guard of WCSO until Monday when it was determined he was to be admitted for his injuries.

WCSO Chief Owens said Wilson County officers followed protocol and faxed all the outstanding warrants for Navarro to Vanderbilt Hospital and Police, verified Vanderbilt received the information and left him under care of Vanderbilt staff as per hospital protocol.

Sometime between the time he left the emergency room and was admitted into the hospital Monday morning, Vanderbilt Police officer assigned to the hospital who had just come on duty at the hospital (who was apparently not notified of his outstanding warrants) saw an unidentified female enter the hospital and leave with Navarro. Vanderbilt authorities contacted Metro Nashville Police and began canvassing the area for the suspect. They notified WCSO approximately two hours after our deputy left failing to find Navarro.

For the past three days, WCSO, Metro Nashville and Immigration authorities have been searching for Navarro, contacting associates he has in the Nashville and Wilson County areas. He is believed to have fled the state, possibly toward the Southwestern part of the country. Law enforcement has been notified in numerous states along with U.S. Border Patrol. He has been entered nationwide NCIC for outstanding warrants. Wilson County Sheriff’s Office will extradite upon capture.

Navarro’s run-in with the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office began Sunday upon receiving a call where Navarro is believed to have forced his way into a home in the area of Tyne Boulevard and Saundersville Road. During the reported incident, he forced his way into another home at Teton Dr. in Wilson Co. When Sheriff’s deputies arrived at the home, he jumped out of the window. He fought with deputies, injuring at least two during his arrest.

WCSO also determined Navarro had previously crashed a Yellow H2 Hummer he was driving into a sign at a convenience store in a sharp curve at Tyne and Saundersville Road. Witnesses said the driver was travelling at a high rate of speed and struck the sign with such force, he uprooted a sign in the store parking lot from its concrete stabilizers.

After a search of Navarro’s vehicle was conducted, it was determined that alcohol and illegal narcotics were likely a determining factor in the crash and subsequent assault on the responding deputies. Deputies also recovered a stolen weapon and a large amount of cash and narcotics.

WCSO Looking for Person of Interest Who Attempted Entry into Stoner Creek Elementary

Wilson County Sheriff’s Office is seeking a person of interest who tried to enter Stoner Creek Elementary School on Wednesday afternoon.

School personnel notified WCSO SRO Matt McPeak that a male had tried to come into the school saying he wanted to “look around.” School officials said he had no legal business at the school and denied him access. The man told school officials he had attended the school “in the 80’s,” and that had “moved to California” and was now living in Gallatin. He stated that he “wanted to see how much the place had grown,” reports noted. Stoner Creek Elementary, however, was not opened until the late 1980s. School officials said the subject appeared to be too young to have attended the school at that time.

School staff was later notified by a parent the male subject was behind the school. When school officials contacted SRO McPeak, he immediately performed an outside perimeter check of the school but was unable to find anyone fitting the description given.

Upon reviewing the school’s surveillance system, he was determined to be a white male wearing a black jacket, red shirt, black shorts and what appeared to be black boots. School personnel described the man as looking “rough,” and acting “very suspicious” when he was denied entry.

The school personnel noted the man slowly exited the building looking up in the corners of the walls and down hallways, which are visible through the glass doors.

The following day, the male subject was observed by a parent leaving the property in a four-door maroon Toyota Corolla. The parent and witnesses told school officials and Wilson County SRO they were unable to get a license plate number.

“We just want to know who the man was and why he was there,” Sheriff Robert Bryan said. “Our Office and the school system want to ensure our young people are safe. We do not know his motive for coming to the school, but we always take any incident out of the ordinary seriously. If you have information, please let us know.”

Anyone with information regarding the subject’s identity is asked to call WCSO at 615-444-1412.

WCSO Deputies Arrest Man for Fleeing Accident Scene, Home Invasion, Assaulting Officers

WCSO Deputies Arrest Man for Fleeing  Accident, Home Invasion, Assaulting Officers

Wilson County Sheriff’s Office arrested an Old Hickory man on numerous charges early Sunday following a car crash and home invasion of two Wilson County residences and assault of two officers.

The incident began when Wilson County Sheriff’s Office received a call regarding a possible home invasion in the area of Tyne Boulevard and Saundersville Road. During the reported incident, numerous people called the sheriff’s office in what turned into a series of events believed to be connected to one man.

According to the reports, a man forced his way into a victim’s home at Teton Dr. in Wilson Co. Deputies with the Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene immediately.

While en route to the initial scene, someone reported another incident involving a man entering a home on Saundersville Road. The residence was located just behind the initial reported home invasion at the Tyne and Saundersville intersection.

Upon arriving on the scene, deputies determined that the suspect in the initial call and the secondary call was the same person who earlier fled the scene of a severe vehicle crash. The crash occurred at a convenience store at the intersection of Tyne Boulevard and Saundersville Road, which is in a sharp curve. This vehicle was travelling at such high rate of speed that upon impact, it forced a concrete-anchored sign down into the parking lot.

The investigation shows thus far that a Yellow H2 Hummer being operated by 36-year-old old Homero Quintanilla Navarro of Old Hickory struck the sign, causing to collapse in the parking lot of the convenience store. After the crash, witnesses stated that Navarro fled on foot from the crash scene travelling east toward a residential area. Soon afterward, it is believed that Navarro forced his way into at least two victims’ homes for a short period of time, and exited both of the homes by jumping through the glass windows in each of the residences.

Deputies responding to the scene made contact with Navarro fleeing through the window of the second victim’s home, where they pursued him a short distance. Despite numerous demands for Navarro to comply with the deputies, he refused and had to be taken into custody while resisting arrest. During the course of Navarro’s arrest, he continued to actively assault the deputies causing minor injuries to at least two of them. At least one of the deputies had to seek medical treatment for injuries.

After a search of Navarro’s vehicle was conducted, it was determined that alcohol and illegal narcotics were likely a determining factor in the crash and subsequent assault on the responding deputies. Deputies also recovered a stolen weapon and a large amount of cash.

Navarro was charged with numerous offenses, including aggravated burglary, DUI, leaving the scene of an accident, evading arrest, assault on two officers and other charges.

“This is a very serious incident,” Sheriff’s Robert Bryan said. “We continue to investigate, and will present our findings to the District Attorney’s Office. Meanwhile, we are grateful no one was seriously injured. Our officers conducted themselves in an extremely professional manner under the circumstances.”

Car Vandalism Complaint Leads to Known Drug Offender Arrest

Car Vandalism Allegations Lead WCSO Deputies to Arrest of Known Drug Offender

 What began as what was thought to be a routine car vandalism car led Wilson County Sheriff’s Deputies to arrest a man who had a substantial amount of marijuana and cash packaged for resale. He was also a parolee out of Davidson County where he had multiple drug charges.

The case began when a woman called the sheriff’s office Thursday morning, complaining she had awakened to find her car badly damaged. She reported it to be an apparent vandalism and asked officers to investigate. When officers arrived at the victim’s Lebanon home, they advised it appeared to have been crashed. Tennessee Highway Patrol was alerted to investigate the crash.

Meanwhile, the woman told officers she believed the suspect in the case to be someone who had been staying at her home during the night later identified as William Marquise Woods, 28, of Nashville. She asked officers to check her home for the suspect, and gave permission for them to enter if he did not open the door.

Deputies Zack Hemontolor and Greg Metcalf knocked on the door and when no one answered, they entered to discover the back door of the home standing open. They believed the suspect had apparently fled on foot and subsequently began searching for him. A short time later, deputies found him walking at 945 E. Baddour Parkway.

As the deputies exited the car, Woods was seen throwing something from behind his back into a nearby ditch. Authorities later determined it was plastic bags of marijuana along with cash inside one bag. Upon further investigation, the deputies determined Woods was on parole out of Nashville for several drug charges.

“That was a great job by our deputies getting a known drug offender off the streets,” Sheriff Robert Bryan said.

William WoodsThe suspect was taken to the Wilson County Jail where he was booked on charges of possession of Schedule VI drugs (marijuana) with intent to sell. He remains in jail under $5,000 bond and is scheduled to face charges on May 24 in General Sessions Court.
