19-year-old Gerald Saint-Pierre was jailed on Saturday for being involved in a string of Airbnb burglaries. The first reported burglary involved four men wearing black hoodies that broke into a white Ford Fusion with Georgia tags. Officers reviewed Ring camera footage showing the suspects leaving in the vehicle. Later, that same Ford Fusion with the same suspects was seen breaking into a home on Martin Street. They stole two purses from that location. Officers later discovered the vehicle with the same suspects driving near Wedgewood and 12th Avenue and attempted to pull them over. The driver refused to stop, and officers began chasing the car. The officers decided to terminate the pursuit due to the speed being a safety concern near the River Gate area. Officers located the stolen Ford Fusion that was abandoned near Gallatin Pike. As officers were waiting to process the vehicle, they were flagged down by Rivergate Mall security, who notified them that there were multiple juveniles wearing dark hoodies who were running. Officers chased the juveniles on foot. When officers caught up with them, they were identified as the four outstanding males linked to the stolen vehicle. They were all taken into custody for interviews and then to the detention center.
Gerald Saint-Pierre was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on November 18, charged with two counts of aggravated burglary, vehicle theft, theft of a firearm, and two counts of evading arrest. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $58,000.
