CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — A call for suspicious activity led police right to a suspect wanted for robbing several Clarksville businesses.
According to a release, the robberies happened in the 2600 block of Trenton Road and 2600 block of Wilma Rudolph Boulevard. The suspect entered the businesses wearing dark clothing and his face covered, pulled a gun, took an unknown amount of money and fled in a silver car.
Officers said they responded to calls of a man trying to open doors to a residence and then claimed to be at the wrong apartment around 10 p.m. Thursday night in the 2700 block of Trenton Road.
