Metro police to continue search for mall suspect

Metro police are searching for a man suspected of stealing items from the Bass Pro Shop in Opry Mills Mall Tuesday night.The robber was chased by store security before jumping in the nearby river headed east.He was described as a white male, bald, 6'2" and around 220 pounds. He was seen wearing a pair of tan shorts, a white shirt and a green hoodie, Capt. David Imhof said.— NANCY DEVILLE (tennessean) Overnight Update Police plan to continue the search for the suspect on Wednesday. The search for him Tuesday night involved the use of a police helicopter with a heat-indicating device. The helicopter made several sweeps along part of the Cumberland River but found no indication of heat, Imhof said.The Nashville Fire Department put in two boats and searched the shoreline but found nothing. The Office of Emergency Management decided against using a diver because the river is high and rough and contains too much debris, according to Imhof.Police will review surveillance video from the mall and also try to identify the man through his vehicle.— LEIGH RAY (Tennessean)
