WILSON CO., Tenn. (WTVF) — A man wanted for aggravated robbery was caught by police during a chase in Mt. Juliet Saturday.

Mt. Juliet Police say they received an alert to a Honda CRV on the roadway, stolen out of Nashville last month. Officers pursued the driver on Santa Fe Trail near Lebanon Road.

The CRV had blown a tire and ultimately ended up in a ditch. The driver ran away from officers and tried getting inside a stranger's home. K-9 Officer Majlo caught the suspect, who was arrested.
