Convicted Felon on Probation Arrested on New Gun and Drug Charges

(From Metro Police February 8, 2023) A Nashville man who was convicted of attempted especially aggravated robbery in 2019 and given an eight-year probated sentence is now jailed on multiple drug and gun charges as the result of his arrest Monday night.

Corey Lewis, 23, was wanted for drug and gun crimes in Sumner County. TITANS (The Investigative Team Addressing Neighborhood Shootings) detectives stopped Lewis in his Dodge Charger in Nashville Monday night. Inside the car were four pounds of marijuana, Percocet pills, and cash. The stop led to the issuance of a search warrant for Lewis’ Brewer Court home. Found there were a pistol that had been modified to make it fully automatic, an AR-15 style rifle, a money counter, two digital scales, additional Percocet pills and more money (total seizure of $18,363).

A Nashville judicial commissioner set Lewis’ bond at $49,500, although a hold has been placed for Sumner County. A Criminal Court probation violation warrant is also expected to be filed.

The attempted especially aggravated robbery conviction is related to gunfire that wounded a 27-year-old Nashville man on July 6, 2018.
