11/17/2012 - South Nashville’s first-ever Gift Cards for Guns event was a strong success today Nov 17, 2012

November 17, 2012




          South Nashville’s first-ever Gift Cards for Guns event was a strong success today as citizens exchanged a total of 91 firearms (76 pistols, 1 sawed-off shotgun and 14 long guns) for $25 Dollar General gift cards.

          The gun turn-in program was held for four hours, 8 a.m.-12 noon, in the parking lot of Tusculum Hills Baptist Church, 4930 Nolensville Pike.  Sponsored by Metro Police, Dollar General, Tusculum Hills Pastor Wesley Baldwin, other Nashville clergy and Crime Stoppers, the Gift Cards for Guns program is designed to take unsafe and unwanted firearms out of Nashville’s neighborhoods.

          “As a result of today’s third Gift Cards for Guns initiative since last December, a total of 337 firearms are now off the streets and will not find their way back into neighborhoods where they might have fallen into the hands of a criminal or even a child,” Chief Steve Anderson said.  “Nashville is safer because of our partnership with outstanding businesses like Dollar General, ministers throughout the community and Crime Stoppers.”

          Citizens turned in 156 guns in June in exchange for MAPCO gift cards.  Ninety firearms were surrendered last December in exchange for Kroger gift cards.

11/16/2012 - Suspect Identified in Carjacking of Cab Driver from Crime Stoppers Tip

November 16, 2012


          North Precinct detectives have sworn out an arrest warrant charging convicted burglar Douglas Maurice Siner with carjacking a Nashville cab driver at knifepoint on November 3rd

          Siner, 45, was developed as a suspect as the result of a Crime Stoppers tip that came in after video from the cab was released to the media on Wednesday.  The victim subsequently positively identified Siner from a photo lineup.

          Siner is alleged to have ridden in the cab from Dickerson Pike to Green Lane.  When informed of the $12 fare, the male driver reported that Siner pulled a knife, forced him out of the minivan, got behind the wheel and left.   The cab was recovered a short time later on Dickerson Pike at Broadmoor Drive.

12/14/2011 - Two separate Robbery Suspects Arrested from two separate tips to Crime Stoppers

December 14, 2011




          Investigation by East Precinct Detectives Rex Davenport and Warren Fleak led to the recent arrest of two Springfield men suspected in separate robberies.

          A tip to Crime Stoppers identified Dustin Wilson, as the person who on November 22nd robbed the Citgo at 500 Main Street.  During an interview, Wilson admitted to the hold up.  He is jailed on $150,000 bond. 

          In the second Crime Stoppers tip, convicted felon Mandricus Darden, is now charged in the October 26th armed robbery of Cash America Pawn at 801 Gallatin Avenue.  Darden, who has previous convictions for cocaine possession and unlawful weapon possession, remains jailed in lieu of $75,000 bond.

          Springfield Police Department detectives greatly assisted in these investigations.       



11/11/2011 - C.S. Tip led to Fast Food Restaurant Mngr Charged w/Sexual Exploitation of Teenage Girl

November 11, 2011




          Sex Crimes detectives this afternoon charged a man, who until this week was the manager of a Hermitage fast food restaurant, with taking nude and sexually explicit photographs of a 15-year-old girl he met through the Internet.

          Todd Stasiak, 41, is jailed on two counts of especially aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor.  Stasiak has admitted to using his cell phone to take pornographic photos of the 15-year-old inside his residence at 336 Stewarts Ferry Pike.  One of the photos depicts the teenager engaged in a sex act with Stasiak. 

          During an examination of Stasiak’s cell phone, detectives discovered other explicit photos of the 15-year-old and at least one other teenager.  A forensic examination of Stasiak’s home computer is pending.

          A tip to Crime Stoppers earlier this week led to the investigation of Stasiak, who until this week managed the Arby’s restaurant at 3400 Lebanon Pike before being sent to the Arby’s in Gordonsville.  Stasiak was arrested in Gordonsville this afternoon.

          Anyone, teenagers or adults, who is aware of inappropriate interaction between Stasiak and minors is urged to contact the police department’s Sex Crimes Unit at 862-7540.  Additional charges against him are anticipated.
