A 41-year old Sycamore Circle man was finally taken into custody by two Murfreesboro Police detectives after a short chase.
Terrill Smith was pulled over by Narcotics Detectives Bryant Mitchell and Michael Levy May 25th on Saddlebrook Drive. While the vehicle was still in motion, Smith allegedly jumped from the vehicle and began running toward Saddlebrook Apartments.
Levy reports just before apprehending Smith, he saw a black object fly out of the suspect's waistband. He was brought to the ground before getting to the black Glock. Smith also lost his ball cap, which reportedly had a Suboxone sublingual strip inside it.
A search of the vehicle also turned up a Smith and Wesson sub-nose revolver under the driver's seat. A stolen weapons check revealed the Glock didn't belong to Smith.
Because of his criminal history, which included convictions of second degree murder and robbery, Smith could not possess a weapon. He also faces evading arrest, simple possession, driving without a license and reckless endangerment charges. He will answer to the charges in General Sessions Court on July 5th. Smith is currently in the Rutherford County Adult Detention Center.
