On February 25th, 2021 SHPD Officers were at Commonwealth at 31 Apartments (2880 Commonwealth Drive) searching for Lewis Platner, 42 years old, who had active arrest warrants from our Department and also for probation violation. Officers observed Platner and two other persons exit Platner’s apartment. Platner went back into his apartment. The other persons (Later identified as Hannah Williams, 31 of Antioch and Terrance Lewis, 31 of Nashville) got into a vehicle that was registered to Platner. Officers obtained reasonable suspicion to stop the vehicle but the vehicle fled north on Main St. The pursuit was terminated by our Department according to policy. The Williamson County Sheriff’s Office observed the subjects in the area of The Fields of Canterbury in Thompson’s Station and the subjects fled from them. Williams and Lewis are not believed to still be in the area. The SHPD will have pending charges on Lewis. Both Lewis and Williams have outstanding warrants from other jurisdictions. Platner was later arrested, without incident, inside of his apartment without incident and lodged at the Maury County Jail.
On Friday January 8th SHPD Officers were notified by the Columbia Police Department that a shooting victim (17 years of age) was at Maury Regional Hospital. The victim stated that the shooting occurred outside of a home on Belle Drive in Spring Hill a few hours earlier. The victim was treated and released from the hospital.
One 16 year old has been arrested and charged with attempted first degree murder, especially aggravated robbery, and reckless endangerment. The shooting was not random and the parties involved are believed to have known each other. The investigation is ongoing.
On Monday, August 17th SHPD Officers were dispatched to the Twice Daily’s on Reserve Blvd. to check on a male attempting to sell tools for gas money. The male was in a Volkswagen. Officers observed a Volkswagen pull up to the gas pumps. The driver entered the store. A computer check of the license plate revealed that the plate was stolen from Missouri and did not match the vehicle it was attached to. Officers approached the driver, later identified as Zachary Godsy, but he fled on foot. Godsy ran behind the store and climbed over a fence and headed towards Saturn Pkwy. Another SHPD Officer was on a traffic stop on Saturn Pkwy in the same area which caused Godsy to head back towards Twice Daily where he was taken into custody.
The VIN check of the vehicle revealed that the vehicle was also reported stolen out of Missouri. Godsy was also in possession of a substance believed to be methamphetamine. Godsy was arrested and transported to the Maury County Jail on the following charges: Resisting stop/halt/frisk/arrest, simple possession (meth), theft of property, and possession of drug paraphernalia. His bond was set at $9500.
ALL PERSONS ENJOY THE PRESUMPTION OF INNOCENCE UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY IN A COURT OF LAW.
