Convicted robber Juston Mayberry has been arrested again after he allegedly held up an MTA bus driver late Tuesday night.
According to the Metro Nashville Police Department, Mayberry waited for all of the passengers to exit the bus on Shelby Avenue at South 5th Street before he approached the driver at 11:10 p.m., threatened that he had a gun, and demanded her wedding and engagement rings and cash. Mayberry fled on foot. The driver immediately notified police, who quickly saturated the area.
About 10 minutes after the robbery, East Precinct Officer Todd Christian spotted Mayberry walking in the 700 block of South 7th Street, where he was apprehended and taken into custody.
Police said the driver’s rings and cash were recovered from Mayberry’s pocket. The victimized driver was brought to the scene where she positively identified Mayberry as the robber.
Mayberry, of Dover Road, is charged with robbery and resisting arrest.
Previously, Mayberry, 36, was sentenced to six years for a 2007 robbery conviction. He also has prior convictions for aggravated robbery, aggravated assault, domestic assault and theft.
