FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Juvenile Crime Task Force Monday night arrested convicted felon Tyquan Scribner, 20, and Aaliyah Washington, 18, after recovering a vehicle taken during a carjacking earlier in the week.
Officers spotted the stolen Toyota Corolla, which had been taken at gunpoint Sunday night in the 600 block of Cheyenne Boulevard, traveling with a second car, a Hyundai Genesis, which had also been reported stolen. Officers attempted to stop the Toyota, driven by Scribner, but he fled at a high rate of speed, ultimately crashing in the 3800 block of Augusta Drive. Scribner and his passenger, Washington, were taken into custody. Scribner admitted his involvement in Sunday night's carjacking in which the victim was pistol whipped.
A full-size replica Glock 19 airsoft handgun and 21 grams of marijuana were recovered from the Toyota. Scribner, of LaVergne, is charged with aggravated robbery, theft of a vehicle, and leaving the scene of an accident. Scribner, who has a previous conviction for aggravated assault, is being held in lieu of $80,000 bond.
Washington, of South 7th Street, is charged with joyriding.
The investigation continues into the second stolen vehicle and its occupants.
