A man and a woman were detained by Metro Nashville police on Wednesday for their alleged roles in a series of seven separate male robberies that occurred in parking lots near Hermitage in South Nashville.
According to the Metro Nashville Police Department, David Miller Jr. and Sarah Buhler, both 31, are accused of aggravated robbery and felony narcotics possession in relation to the crime spree that lasted less than 24 hours.
The criminals allegedly robbed nine men in total. The first robbery, according to MNPD, happened on Tuesday at 12:50 a.m. in a parking lot in the 900 block of Thompson Place. Police were informed by a man that the suspect grabbed a weapon and ordered him out of his grey 2011 Nissan Maxima after he refused to give the pair a ride. He agreed, according to the police, and the two sped off in the automobile.
The suspects allegedly then robbed two men at gunpoint in the parking lot of a gas station at 1330 Vultee Boulevard around 5 o’clock on Tuesday before driving off in the stolen Nissan Maxima, according to police.
Five hours later, at 10 p.m., a man reported that the suspects had come up next to him in the Maxima as he was parked in the lot at 4900 Linbar Drive. He claimed that the male suspect exited the van, unlocked the door, attacked him with a gun, and took his money. Police claim that early on Wednesday, detectives tried to halt the suspect Nissan Maxima after spotting it.
Police said the driver fled and had an accident in the 1300 block of Vultee Boulevard. According to authorities, both wanted robbery suspects were found inside the car and apprehended.
Miller acknowledged being involved in interviews. He had the victim’s wallet from Linbar Drive, according to the police. Additionally, the vehicle contained several baggies of what the police suspect to be crack cocaine—white pebbles.
Miller is also accused of robbing a man on October 24 in the parking lot of a convenience store in the 300 block of Plus Park Boulevard. The robbery of a guy on September 17 in the parking lot of the Hermitage Inn in the 4400 block of Lebanon Pike is allegedly the work of both suspects.
Before being apprehended following a collision on Vultee Boulevard, the subsequent thefts included taking two men’s wallets from them while holding them at gunpoint and another man’s wallet from him in a parking lot. According to Davidson County jail records, Miller was being held on a $435,000 bond on Wednesday. On $350,000, Buhler was being detained.
