Tennessee Bureau of Investigation agents served former top 10 most wanted fugitive Tyler Raybon-Tate on indictment charges obtained last August.

Raybon-Tate was wanted out of Rutherford County for aggravated burglary and Davidson County for aggravated kidnapping, carjacking, evading arrest, failure to appear and violating community corrections.

On July 5, TBI agents said Raybon-Tate and another person committed an aggravated burglary at a home in LaVergne. Officers attempted to stop the vehicle they were traveling in when one subject got out of the vehicle and was taken into custody.

Raybon-Tate continued to flee in the vehicle at a high rate of speed, brandishing a firearm and nearly striking a police officer. The vehicle Raybon-Tate fled in was recovered in Antioch.

On July 8, agents said Raybon-Tate carjacked another vehicle in Nashville while fleeing officers. At that time, he was added to the state’s most wanted list.

On July 10, local, state and federal law enforcement arrested Raybon-Tate without incident in Nashville. He was booked in the Davidson County jail.

In August 2013, TBI got indictments for attempted murder, evading arrest with a motor vehicle and possession of a weapon by a felon.

Rutherford County Transport officers picked up Raybon-Tate on Monday from the Davidson County Jail. His next court date is April 11, where he will face an aggravated burglary charge from LaVergne police and TBI indictment charges.
