Metro police have arrested a man accused of breaking into multiple vehicles at several Nashville parks since May.

A witness called police after seeing a man, later identified as Carlos Johnson, 28, wearing a stocking hat breaking into vehicles at Percy Warner Park on Saturday.

Witnesses stated Johnson, was driving a Black PT Cruiser or HHR with tinted windows. They said Johnson also almost hit them with his vehicle.

A responding officer spotted the described vehicle and attempted to pull him over before he bolted out of the vehicle and fled on foot.

Johnson was later found hiding in a Bellevue apartment complex where he was arrested.

Johnson is alleged to have broken into vehicles at Percy Warner, Edwin Warner, and Shelby parks, among other places around Nashville over the last several months.

There are multiple instances where Johnson was caught on surveillance video using stolen cards and making fraudulent transactions. Johnson's fingerprints were also matched to prints taken from some of the victim's vehicles.

Johnson faces at least 22 charges including burglary of a vehicle, identity theft, fraudulent use of a credit card, forgery, a violation of probation, and evading arrest.

He has previous convictions including burglary of a vehicle and fraudulent use of a credit card.

He is being held without bond.
