UPDATE: The Lascassas Pharmacy was robbed and there was a two-county chase for the suspect. NewsRadio WGNS' Bryan Barrett has the story...

Rutherford County Sheriff's deputies arrested a 33-year old Mt. Juliet man, well known to authorities, after the Lascassas Pharmacy was robbed and a chase ensued. Sheriff Robert Arnold says customers, who were told by suspect Darrell Lambert to leave the pharmacy just before 9:30, did so and called 9-1-1...

Lambert reportedly ordered the clerk to give him all of the schedule two drugs and put them in a duffel bag. He then left in a blue Honda Elantra.

Deputy Nick Coble, who was in the area, met up with the suspect on Highway 96 and called out a pursuit after trying to conduct a traffic stop on Compton Road. Arnold says the pursuit went down Compton Road to Highway 231 north, toward Walter Hill. The pursuit continued and reached into Wilson County, before Lambert turned onto back roads where other Rutherford County Sheriff's deputies were joined by Wilson County authorities.

After puncturing all four tires with spike strips, the suspect continued until Sgt. Lee Young, a certified pit maneuver instructor, stopped the vehicle on Rockdale Fellowship Road.

Arnold says Lambert is no stranger to them...

Lambert's 23 other offenses have included violation of probation, violation of parole, driving without a license, casual exchange of marijuana, public dunk, domestic violence assault, burglary, fraud, aggravated assault, assault, criminal impersonation and several counts of aggravated robbery and theft.

The sheriff speculates because the business was in the county, it was targeted...

Lambert was taken to the hospital before being booked to the Rutherford County Adult Detention Center.
