Crime Tracker

Metro Police tracked down a man accused of robbing several people at a motel in Hermitage.

According to an arrest affidavit, police spotted Lorenzo Barnhill Friday at America’s Best Value Inn along Old Hickory Boulevard near Central Pike.

Police said that is the same motel where Barnhill is accused of committing an armed robbery last month.

Barnhill was wanted for both aggravated robbery and a probation violation, police said.  

The report stated that Barnhill had a gun on him and when he was approached by officers, he tried to run.

The suspect was eventually taken into custody and charged with evading arrest, several counts of aggravated robbery and possession of a handgun by a convicted felon.
