Six Persons Indicted on 126 Criminal Counts for Robbing Nashville Latino Families Over a Period of Years
March 19, 2021
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
A six-person robbery crew linked to 150 robberies by mostly Latino families across Nashville between 2017 and 2019 has been indicted on 126 counts by the Davidson County Grand Jury.
The indictment goes back to 29 violent robberies, in which the victims were often beaten, even while working together. The armed suspects often entered apartment buildings through unlocked sliding glass doors. These 29 cases were selected for prosecution based on the evidential value and committed support of the victims in collaboration with the prosecutor.
It is estimated that these crew members were responsible for robbing victims of cash and personal items such as cell phones valued at $ 150,000.
The defendants are:
• Montez Brown, 27, with ties to Clarksville & Nashville, the group’s alleged leader who has been in custody since December 2019 on related grave robbery and gun charges. Brown faces a total of 62 aggravated robbery charges, 7 major burglary charges, 37 gun burglary charges, and 3 aggravated assault charges.
• Anthony Campbell III, 27, with ties to Clarksville & Nashville, who has been in custody since August 2019 for serious robbery related charges. He faces a total of 4 charges of serious robbery, 1 charge of serious burglary and 1 charge of armed violence.
• Tevin Kelly, 27, of Nashville, who was detained on Thursday’s indictment and had a loaded semi-automatic pistol at the time of his arrest. Kelly has been charged with a serious robbery and additional charges are pending against him.
• Nathan Rosenthal Jr., 30, from Nashville, who was taken into custody Thursday. Rosenthal was charged with 4 serious robberies, 1 serious break-ins and 2 weapons.
• Quanisha Moore, 26, of Clarksville, who remains at large. She was charged with 10 serious robberies.
• Demarrious Malone, 29, from Memphis, who also remains at large. He was charged with three charges of aggravated robbery.
The investigation shows that at least some of the defendants used the proceeds from the robberies to improve their lifestyles by traveling to the Dominican Republic, Miami, and Texas, and by purchasing jewelry, shoes, and guns.
The Midtown Hills Precinct investigation team led this investigation for the past 4 years with assistance from the MNPD’s Specialized Investigations Division, the division’s El Protector Program, and the FBI.
