One person has been arrested and another is on the loose after a bank robbery in south Nashville and a carjacking at a gas station.
Authorities are looking for 26-year-old convicted felon Kershawn Globe.
Officials said at 11:20 a.m. Saturday morning he walked into the Fifth Third Bank on 47 East Thompson Lane wearing a mask and carrying a gun.
Globe allegedly told a teller to put money in a pillowcase before fleeing the scene.
Officers used K9 units to track him to an address on Elissa Drive, but Globe took off on foot. After searching the home, officials found the stolen money and a nine millimeter pistol.
At 12:05 p.m., Globe went to the Shell Gas Station on 1631 Elm Hill Pike where he reportedly carjacked Dennis Garlangerat.
Garlangerat told News 2 he was inside the store getting slushies with his two grandchildren when Globe approached him.
"Then he said, 'Give me the keys, give me the blank keys. I gotta gun,' and I looked at him and he said, 'Otherwise, I'm going to kill the [expletive] kids.' So, I gave him the keys to my car."
Globe drove the stolen Ford Windstar van to Two Rivers Parkway where he pulled over and approached Sharon Begley and her friend as they were getting out of their vehicle to look at a house.
The suspect asked to use their cell phone and they complied.
"We had a very uneasy feeling and didn't know if he had a gun or not. So, we didn't want to chance saying no to him and him pulling a gun or something like that," explained Begley.
She said Globe took off with the phone. They got into their car and followed him to Two Rivers Park where they blocked the entrance and called 911.
Shortly after, he abandoned the stolen van and was picked up by a woman driving a silver Toyota Corolla.
The van was still rolling and was headed in the direction of children playing in the park. Begley and her friend rammed their car into the van to stop it from moving. No one was hurt.
Later Saturday evening, police arrested Globe’s accused accomplice, 46-year-old Darrin Caver, near the intersection of Glastonbury Road and Briley Parkway.
He reportedly drove the getaway car from the bank.
Caver will be in the Metro Jail over the weekend, and he is expected to face charges for bank robbery Monday morning.
The FBI’s Violent Crimes Task Force plans to seek warrants charging Globe with bank robbery and carjacking.
Anyone with information on his whereabouts is urged to call the Emergency Communications Center at 615-862-8600 or Crime Stoppers at 615-74-CRIME.
