William Todd took that advice to heart. As he was traveling through Tennessee, he allegedly pulled off a massive crime spree that local police say they’ve never seen anything like it.
“He was just on a terror. I’ve never seen anything like this before,” Sgt. Tony Blackburn, told WSMV.
Todd traveled to Nashville on a Greyhound bus from Kentucky before beginning his misadventures. Upon arriving in Nashville, he allegedly broke into a local business called The Slaughterhouse, where he stole a Taser, a revolver, and a shotgun. He then stole a T-shirt from the Slaughterhouse before burning it down.
Todd then went to a local bar, where he held four patrons at gunpoint. He robbed all four of them, but not before using the Taser on one and pistol-whipping a second.
Just five minutes later, Todd carjacked a taxi driver at gunpoint. After leaving the cab, he used the stolen credit cards he had just acquired to buy some food.
“He was able to find the Walmart on Nolensville. He goes there and purchased $199 worth of items,” Sgt. Blackburn said.
William Todd was just getting warmed up.
Early the next morning, Todd broke into a hotel law office, vandalized it, defecated on a desk, and smeared his excrement on a few of the framed law degrees.
Todd then apparently robbed several of the hotel guests after knocking on their doors and pretending to be a female housekeeper. He was also reportedly crying while doing so.
He then took a little break to try and change his appearance.
“We have him on video leaving the hotel with a shaved head,” Sgt. Blackburn said.
After crashing his stolen taxi into a local parking garage, Todd then held yet another taxi driver at gunpoint. When police finally caught him, he was hiding at Opryland, partially submerged in a water-cooling vat. The local fire department had to help Todd get out of the vat.
His bond has been set at $180,000.
“He rode the Greyhound bus and had a layover, then left in blue lights,” Sgt. Blackburn said. “There definitely could be more charges. We hope that there are no more victims.”
Now THAT’s how you pull off a crime spree, folks…10 felonies in 9 hours…that’s a full day’s work.
