NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Three teens were arrested Thursday after they were found with drugs and multiple guns while riding in stolen cars.
Metro police say officers spotted Latrell Knott, 19, and Avunt Oldham, 18, both of Nashville, riding in a stolen Nissan Altima at a Dickerson Pike gas station with a 15-year-old passenger.
Oldham got out of the driver’s seat of the Altima, which had been reported stolen out of Clarksville, and got into the backset of another Nissan Altima being driven by Knott that had been reported stolen out of Murfreesboro. Knott drove the Altima to Jackson Street and 17th Avenue North when officers stopped the car, causing all three occupants to flee.
Knott was quickly apprehended as well as the 15-year-old following a brief foot pursuit. Oldham was found hiding in a nearby unlocked vehicle. He also had a bottle of Hydrocodone pills with him, which he admitted to selling, according to police.
Inside the Altima, investigators found a Glock 45 9mm handgun equipped with a Glock switch and large drum magazine, a loaded Glock 21 .45cal handgun, several boxes of ammunition, several 9mm magazines containing bullets, several items of drug paraphernalia and several stolen credit cards.
