Authorities have apprehended all three suspects wanted in connection with an armed robbery of a man in early November at Fairfield Inn in Smyrna.

“All suspects from the robbery have been arrested,” said Kevin Arnold, chief of the Smyrna Police Department. “We at the Smyrna Police Department would like to thank the (media and public) for their assistance in getting three dangerous people off the streets of Middle Tennessee.”

Nashville residents Daniel T. Jones, 28, and Brandon L. Leonard, 28, have been arrested in connection with the incident, which occurred Nov. 5 just after 6 p.m. in the 800 block of Expo Drive, according to a Police Department press release.

Twenty-seven-year-old Shane Bohon, who is the third suspect in the case, has also been apprehended.

Jones, Leonard, Bohon, and a female juvenile are accused of luring the man to the hotel, where they robbed him at gunpoint and stole his wallet and cell phone.

The trio fled the scene in an older model Pontiac sedan without the female suspect, whose identity is not being release because she is younger than 18 years old. She was quickly apprehended when police arrived at the scene.

All three men have each been charged with one count of aggravated robbery and conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery.

“Jones is being held at the Metro-Davidson (County Detention Facility) due to violation of probation charges,” Arnold said, “and he will be facing the Smyrna charges when he can be released from there.”

Leonard and Bohon remain in custody at the Rutherford County Adult Detention Center.

How nice is it to get these "dangerous" men off the street only to have them bail out the next day. We should feel a lot safer knowing they are running the streets again and could do the same thing again.

You are right mommywilkinson, their is nothing stopping them from committing another serious crime. It should be a law that if you are waiting on a trial for an offense, then you are arrested again on the same suspicion, they should not offer a plea deal to these guys. Obviously, if you rob someone before even having a trial for your first robbery charge, you do not care about society.

Maybe the moral should be, do not go with some girl who is soliciting you for sex(I am assuming that is what happened here).
