NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A man and woman who were wanted for their suspected involvement in vehicle burglaries were arrested Thursday.

A criminal precinct detective spotted the male suspect, William Griggs, who is homeless, walking on Fairfield Avenue. The detective took Griggs into custody.

After further investigation, officers determined the location of the woman, Tonia Davenport, to be a makeshift residence in the 100 block of Green Street.

Davenport first refused to exit her residence, but surrendered after a standoff with police.

According to Metro Police, Davenport used a stolen credit card at a Fesslers Lane gas station on the morning of May 13. The card was stolen earlier that morning from a minivan parked on Hermitage Avenue, after the suspect shattered the driver's side window.

Davenport has been charged with auto burglary and fraudulent use of a credit card. Her bond has been set at $3,500.

Griggs has been charged with the May 14 robbery of a Florida man on 8th Avenue South at Korean Veterans Blvd. The victim in that robbery told police the suspect had placed him in a choke hold and stolen his wallet and cell phone. Griggs is being held in lieu of a $15,500 bond.
