Metro Police believe an armed robbery suspect who crashed his Jeep Cherokee during a police pursuit Tuesday night may be a serial robber responsible for multiple west Nashville robberies in the last month.

The suspect, whose name and photo are being withheld pending lineups in other robberies, allegedly robbed Nashville Wine and Spirits just before 8 p.m. Tuesday.

Police pursued the suspect through west Nashville until he crashed on Charlotte Avenue at Interstate 40. He was not hurt and was taken into custody without incident.

A robbery at the Green Hills Wine Shoppe on Nov. 28 may have been the work of the same suspect, police said..

Police say as many as four robberies this week alone may ultimately be tied to the suspect arrested Tuesday.
