MNPD apprehends West Nashville robbery suspect

From the Metro Nashville Police Department:
A registered ex-con on parole until 2011 is charged in three armed robberies in West Nashville and is a suspect in at least two others in South Nashville. Outstanding police work led to last night’s arrest of Ray Neil Thompson, 38, who admitted his involvement in the following robberies:
  • Smoothie King, 4546 Harding Pike, on September 12
  • 21 Up Video, 284 White Bridge Road, on September 14 
  • Baskin Robbins, 850 Hillwood Boulevard, on September 16
A witness to yesterday afternoon’s Baskin Robbins robbery provided police with a partial tag number of the getaway car which led to Thompson’s identification by West Precinct Sergeant Twana Chick and Detective Diana McCoy.  A BOLO was issued for Thompson at 10 p.m.  A few minutes later East Precinct Officer Sunjun Park located Thompson sitting in the suspect car, a 1983 Oldsmobile Delta, in the 900 block of Chickasaw Avenue.  Thompson fled on foot, but was captured a short time later.

Thompson is charged with three counts of aggravated robbery and evading arrest.  He is being held on $305,000 bond.  Additional robbery charges are pending.   Thompson has past convictions for aggravated robbery, theft, forgery, and domestic assault.
