2 Suspects In Custody, 1 At Large In Madison Robbery

CREATED Mar 19, 2014

MADISON, Tenn. – Two people have been taken into custody and another remains at large in connection with an early morning robbery in Davidson County.

Officials with the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department said 25-year-old Kanetha Miller, 30-year-old James Cox III and an unidentified male suspect approached a parked vehicle near 3300 Moonlight Drive in Madison with weapons drawn around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Three people were inside the vehicle.

The three suspects were wearing bandanas, and yelled out that they were police. They told the three victims to get on the ground. One of the victims ran inside a nearby home while the other two complied with the suspects' demands.

Police said two male victims were robbed of everything, including their clothes. No one was hurt.

The suspects were seen leaving the scene in a white Dodge Charger, which was later stopped for a traffic violation on Scott and Douglas Avenues in east Nashville. Police were able to take Miller and Cox into custody, while the other man fled on foot.

The officer held the robbers at the scene until the victims came to identify them.

Miller and Cox were both charged with three counts of aggravated robbery. They were each being held on $250,000 bond.

Officials said Miller was free at the time on $5,000 bond from theft charges stemming from a separate robbery-related case in February. They said she also had previous convictions for cocaine possession, forgery and evading arrest.

Cox was also no stranger to the criminal court system. He had previous convictions for aggravated assault and the possession of a handgun by a felon.

Mug shots of both Miller and Cox were not released while investigators determined their participation in other criminal cases.

Police were still looking for the third suspect in the robbery. Anyone with information has been asked to call Crime Stoppers at 615-74-CRIME (615-742-7463).
