Police said Wednesday they are looking for a Kentucky fugitive believed to have robbed a Shoney’s restaurant Tuesday evening, just hours after robbing two other victims.
Detectives from the Metro Nashville Police Department's South Precinct have sworn out warrants for Jeffery Everly, 38, after they believe he walked into the Shoney’s at Interstate 65 and Old Hickory Boulevard in South Nashville at about 7:20 p.m., grabbed cash out of the register and fled in his pickup truck.
Everly is also suspected of robbing the Mapco convenience store at 21st Avenue and Blair Boulevard just 20 minutes prior to the Shoney’s robbery as well as stealing a woman’s purse in a Kroger parking lot on Highway 100 at 5:25 p.m.
Everly is described as a 6-foot-tall white man, weighing about 200 pounds. He has brown hair and may have a mustache or short beard.
Metro police took out warrants against Everly for robbery and aggravated assault. He is wanted in Kentucky for Monday’s robbery of a convenience store on U.S. 231 south of Beaver Dam at the Western Kentucky Parkway.
Everly was last seen driving a 1994 Ford F-150 pickup truck bearing Kentucky license number 859-HGF.
In the Shoney’s robbery, police said Everly entered the restaurant and asked the manager for change. When the manager opened the cash drawer, Everly allegedly grabbed the money and ran.
The manager chased Everly out of the store but was knocked off balance as Everly tried to escape in a pickup truck. As Everly fled, police said he backed the vehicle over the manager’s arm and leg.
Police urge anyone seeing Everly or knowing his whereabouts to contact the Emergency Communications Center at 862-8600 or Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME.
