An Oak Grove man was arrested in connection with a robbery in Clarksville yesterday.
A news release from Clarksville Police says 26-year old Ryan Hart of 613 Kerri Lane, Oak Grove went to a business in the 1600 block of Fort Campbell Boulevard around noon yesterday using a large handgun.
Police say he demanded money, while holding three female employees at gunpoint. The women gave him cash and he demanded their identifications before fleeing the scene with the money stuffed in his pockets.
Detective Eric Ewing was quickly able to identify Hart as a suspect and Oak Grove Police detained him until in his home Clarksville law enforcement arrived.
Hart voluntarily accompanied detectives back to Clarksville, where he would admit to the robbery. Hart later took police to a wooded area where he put the money and a 40 caliber Glock in a buried cooler. The women’s identifications were also found buried nearby.
Hart is charged with aggravated robbery and is lodged in the Montgomery County Jail.
