NASHVILLE, Tenn. — A bold robbery in broad daylight catches a store and a community by surprise. It happened at the GameStop store in Madison Wednesday.
Metro Police said this was a calculated robbery. What makes this one so unusual, according to investigators, is that the robber called ahead of time, pretending to be a customer and saying he needed a gift for his kid. Except when the suspect came into the store, investigators said it became clear he wasn't interested in buying a gift at all.
The robbery happened around 10:00 Wednesday morning, just minutes after the GameStop on Gallatin Pike opened. Surveillance video captures what police believe is the robber's car, which is a newer-model gray Nissan Versa casing the shopping center for about an hour.
