MT. JULIET – A Mt. Juliet officer pulled a vehicle over for littering, which led to charges for two wanted suspects Monday morning.

Sgt. Matthew Mang witnessed trash blowing out from the bed of a 1993 Chevrolet pickup on Lebanon Road at about 8:30 a.m. After stopping the truck on Lebanon Road near N. Greenhill Road, a computer check revealed the driver and passenger in the truck had active warrants from nearby agencies.

The driver, Bruce Tibbs, 45, of Old Hickory, was arrested on a warrant for failure to appear out of Wilson County. The passenger, Shonn Tibbs, 43, of Old Hickory, was arrested on a felony warrant for theft of a motor vehicle out of Nashville.
