Man with ‘Juggalo’ tattoo identified as suspect in armed robbery outside East Nashville Kroger


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Metro police have identified the man with a Juggalo tattoo accused of robbing a customer of his motorcycle in the parking lot of an East Nashville Kroger last week.

Officers said Wednesday morning that arrest warrants had been issued for Zachary Wayne Turner, 28, on charges of carjacking and auto theft.

Police said the victim was loading his groceries onto his motorcycle around 5:30 p.m. Friday at the Kroger on Gallatin Pike near Shelton Avenue.

He told officers that a man, later identified as Turner, approached him, lifted his shirt to reveal a revolver in his waistband and ordered him to hand over his keys.

As Turner attempted to ride off on the motorcycle, officers said he was confronted by a Kroger security guard, causing him to crash.
