Convicted Felon and Fugitive Tyler Raybon Sought


July 8, 2013


Convicted felon and fugitive Tyler Raybon, (also known as Tyler Tate) 20, is believed to be the man responsible for this morning’s carjacking at the Kroger parking lot at 5319 Mt. View Road.  At the time of today’s crime, Raybon was being sought in connection with a home burglary Friday in LaVergne and outstanding warrants in Nashville.
Officer Ed Draves, who is familiar with Raybon, spotted him walking in the Mt. View Road/Bell Road area just before 9 a.m.  After seeing the officer, Raybon ran to the grocery store parking lot where he jumped inside the victim’s 2012 red Ford Escape bearing Tennessee vanity license plate PYITFWD.  A short time later, he forced her to pull over by the Kroger gas pumps where he pushed her out of the vehicle.  He drove off toward I-24.   The victim was not injured.
In LaVergne, Raybon is wanted in connection with a burglary that occurred Friday.   In Nashville, Raybon was arrested on February 21st and charged with attempted criminal homicide for allegedly shooting a man multiple times during a January robbery.  He was free on $500,000 bond for the attempted murder when on June 17th he allegedly burglarized a house on Nashua Lane.  When officers three days later attempted to serve a warrant charging Raybon with that crime, he refused to stop his vehicle and during the pursuit removed a GPS monitoring device from his ankle.   The ankle bracelet was recovered on I-24 near Ewing Drive.
Additional arrest warrants charging Raybon with carjacking and aggravated kidnapping were issued today.
Anyone seeing Raybon or knowing his whereabouts is urged to contact the Emergency Communications Center at 862-8600 or Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME.   Citizens can also send an electronic tip to Crime Stoppers by texting the word “CASH” along with their message to 274637 (CRIMES) or by logging onto
