Fugitive Tyler Raybon (also known as Tyler Tate) In Custody

July 10, 2013

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Members of the U.S. Marshals Task Force this morning arrested convicted felon and fugitive Tyler Raybon, (also known as Tyler Tate) 20, at 824 Charlie Place.
          
During an interview with South Precinct detectives today, Raybon admitted he jumped into a woman’s 2012 Ford Escape in the Kroger parking lot at 5319 Mt. View Road to elude an officer.  He forced the victim to drive off before he pushed her out of the SUV by the Kroger gas pumps.  Raybon also told detectives he had a gun in his backpack.  At the time of the carjacking, Raybon was being sought in connection with a home burglary Friday in LaVergne and outstanding warrants in Nashville.  Items from the carjacking were recovered inside the Charlie Place residence.  The victim’s SUV was recovered on County Hospital Road.
          
At the time of today’s arrest, Raybon was free on $500,000 bond for attempted criminal homicide after he allegedly shot a man multiple times during a January robbery.  While free on bond, he is accused of burglarizing a house on Nashua Lane.  When officers three days later attempted to serve a warrant charging Raybon with that break-in, 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.
          
Raybon, who was discharged from General Hospital a short time ago, faces multiple charges in Davidson County including carjacking, aggravated kidnapping, evading arrest, aggravated burglary and failure to be booked.
          
West and South Precinct detectives continue to investigate Raybon’s suspected involvement in additional burglary cases.
