Two juveniles charged in a June 7 car-jacking on Chipwood Drive in Hendersonville will be tried as adults, according to a Hendersonville Police Department media release.
A Sumner County juvenile court judge decided Wednesday to move Lamerious Collins and Lewis Dawson, both 16, to adult court.
Each has been charged with aggravated robbery and two counts of theft over $1,000. They remain in the Sumner County Jail on $250,000 bonds. A court date has been set for Sept. 22.
Less than two weeks after a Hendersonville man was robbed of his car at gun point in the driveway of his Chipwood Drive home, police announced on June 17 the arrest of four 'violent criminals' believed to have ties to gang activity in Metro Nashville.
Chief Mickey Miller detailed during a press conference a 10-day man hunt in which local police spent countless hours tracking four suspects throughout Middle Tennessee, with one arrest being made as far away as Florida.
Police charged Deion Boyd and Traivon Bohannon, both 18 of Nashville, as well as the two juveniles.
Miller said then that all four were believed to be a part of a violent gang in Metro Nashville but would not elaborate on the gang name.
Miller also said at the time of the arrests that one of the juveniles bragged that this was his 101st arrest, and that police were able to verify that the juvenile had been arrested 97 times.
Both Boyd and Bohannon were indicted by the Sumner County grand jury in August on several charges. They are both being held on a $500,000 bond and will be arraigned on Aug. 25.
