Four juveniles and one adult are in custody following a robbery at Roll N Up Liquor store in Nashville March 28.
According to Nashville police, robbers allegedly entered the store during business hours and grabbed $853 worth of merchandise, which was mainly liquor and beer, and left without paying.
The clerk was able to identify the license plate of the vehicle in which they fled and alerted Nashville police.
A short time later, the vehicle was spotted by Mt. Vernon police, but the vehicle fled once again. The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department took over the pursuit, which went through Dix before returning to Mt. Vernon.
When the vehicle ultimately stopped in Mt. Vernon, the occupants of the vehicles attempted to flee on foot before being apprehended by police and deputies.
Five people were arrested following the pursuit: four juvenile males and one female adult. The adult was identified as Michelle Sharp, 22, of Mt. Vernon.
Three of the four teenage males are from Mt. Vernon, and the fourth is from Ft. Worth, Texas.
All five individuals were cited with charges relating to the attempt to elude police in Jefferson County. No charges have yet been filed in Washington County.
