NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A 16-year-old faces charges in connection with a Nashville carjacking after police say information from his ankle monitor tied him to the crime.

The incident happened on August 13 at an apartment on Belle Valley Drive when two 21-year-olds were carjacked.

Metro Nashville police said 16-year-old Antoine Maupin has been charged with two counts of aggravated robbery in the case.

Officers arrested him and 16-year-old Lacories Howse on August 16. Police said a pistol reported stolen in Indianapolis was found in their car, along with a ski mask.

At the time of his arrest, Maupin was in Department of Children’s Services custody on a trial home visit and was wearing an ankle monitor. Police said he was charged after records from the monitoring device were analyzed.

Investigators said Howse escaped from the TrueCore facility on Stewarts Ferry Pike on July 25 after scaling a fence.
