Police link man arrested in ATM holdup to other crimes

Posted:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Metro police detectives believe the man arrested Thursday for kidnapping a man at a Regions Bank ATM located at 5100 Charlotte Avenue is responsible for at least two other recent ATM hold-ups, one at the same branch and the other at Fifth Third Bank on White Bridge Road.

According to a news release, Joshua Cartelli, 26, allegedly approached the victim, who was standing outside the ATM checking his account balance, and attempted to rob him at gunpoint.

When Cartelli learned the victim's account was overdrawn, he forced him into his vehicle and made the victim drive to other ATMs where the victim was able to withdraw cash.

After he obtained money, Cartelli had the victim drop him off at 4190 Nolensville Pike where he ran to a gray GMC Yukon and fled the area.

The victim immediately flagged down officers in the area who quickly located the SUV on Wallace Road.

The two persons inside the Yukon reported that Cartelli had called them for a ride home and that they had no knowledge of his illegal activities.

Cartelli was arrested Thursday night and charged with aggravated kidnapping, aggravated robbery and unlawful possession of a controlled substance.

Police said Cartelli has previous drug possession convictions.  He is being held in lieu of $100,000 bond.

His photo is being withheld pending lineups in other ATM robbery cases, police said.
