A Nashville man who was free on $60,000 bond in regard to a home burglary indictment is back in jail following his arrest Wednesday in connection with a continuing investigation into home burglaries in the October Woods area of South Nashville.
Redeer N. Ramazan, 24, of Thornehill Drive in Antioch, is charged with aggravated burglary, vehicle theft, assaulting a police officer, evading arrest, resisting arrest, and drug possession.
On Wednesday afternoon, South Precinct Flex officers were continuing a saturation of the October Woods area in the wake of six residential burglaries between July 3rd and September 5th. They were on the lookout for a black Toyota Camry that was stolen from a Nashville home on June 30th and had been seen by a witness during the commission of a home burglary on Catspaw Drive on July 17th.
The car was also connected to an August 10th home burglary on Steamdale Point E in Antioch. At 2:40 p.m. Wednesday, Officer Joe Hooper saw the Camry turn onto October Woods Drive from Old Hickory Boulevard and pull into the driveway of a home on Hurley Court. Officer Colin Feeney approached the Camry, at which point Ramazan jumped out and ran away.
Officers chased him through the neighborhood and across Old Hickory Boulevard. When Officer Brian Penny caught up with Ramazan, he shoved Penny, causing Penny to fall. He suffered a fractured ankle as a result. Other officers took Ramazan into custody.
Inside the Camry were an assault-type rifle in the passenger seat, a pistol in the center console, bags of jewelry in the backseat floorboard, and multiple jewelry boxes in the trunk. The victim from a September 5th home burglary on nearby Red Apple Road came to the scene and identified several items of jewelry in the car as coming from his house.
Ramazan is charged in the Red Apple Road case and remains under investigation in the other October Woods area home burglary cases.
His bond on the newest charges is set at $80,000.
