HENDERSONVILLE, Tennessee (WKRN) – Three people were arrested Thursday after they were caught breaking into vehicles in connection with a check cashing scheme.
According to police, the department on Thursday received complaints of multiple Felony Lane Gang-style vehicle thefts that took place at the Burn Fitness Bootcamp on Avondale Road. Officers reviewed surveillance video that showed a man in a silver Mitsubishi Outlander Sport smashing several car windows and stealing purses.
Police were able to identify the vehicle involved in the break-ins using license plate readers. Upon further investigation, police determined that the robberies were linked to a check cashing scheme that took place in Goodlettsville. This incident involved a check that was stolen during a robbery in Knoxville.
Hendersonville police, with the help of Nashville International Airport Police, found two suspects while trying to swap the Mitsubishi for a different vehicle. The two suspects were identified as Laura Powers, 61, and Tavara Harris, 33.
Officers later found a black Nissan Rogue at a hotel on Elm Hill Pike and found 28-year-old Tevis Robinson inside. Investigators determined that Robinson was the man seen on surveillance video stealing vehicles in Hendersonville.
Powers and Harris were arrested and charged with five counts of criminal liability for theft, four counts of criminal liability for theft under $1,000, criminal liability for theft over $1,000, and five counts of criminal liability for vandalism.
Harris will also be charged with identity theft and also had active Florida warrants for similar incidents.
Robinson was charged with five counts of theft, four counts of theft under $1,000, theft over $1,000, five counts of vandalism and criminal liability for identity theft.
