In July of 2014, two white males armed with handguns forced entry into a Smyrna residence. Once inside, the two men claimed to be undercover police officers.
The residence was occupied by four females ranging from age 24 to 73 and two small children, ages 6 and 4. One of the men held the occupants at gun point while the other searched the residence. The two suspects fled the scene on foot and got into to a waiting vehicle. Luckily, no one was physically injured during this incident.
The investigation led to Landon Wayne Henley, age 20 of Nashville and David Shannon Engelbert, age 44 of Nashville, being identified as the suspects.
Landon Henley was apprehended and charged with Aggravated Burglary, Aggravated Robbery, and Criminal Impersonation. He is currently being held at the Rutherford County Jail on a $300,000 bond.
Engelbert is on the run and currently wanted by police. The man has outstanding arrest warrants for Aggravated Burglary, Aggravated Robbery, and Criminal Impersonation. Engelbert has a criminal history with violent offenses and should be considered armed and dangerous.
Anyone with information concerning his location should contact their local police or Detective Robert Monroe at the Smyrna Police Department at (615) 267-5455.
This is an ongoing investigation and police expect to make more arrests in this case.
