NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – The Metro Nashville Police Department said a citizen’s tip led to the quick arrest of two men accused in a Madison burglary Monday.

Zamar Redmond, a 22-year-old convicted robber, and Michael Tate, 24, are accused of entering a home on Pewter Court in Madison by breaking a window.

When police arrived, Redmond and Tate reportedly refused to come outside.

SWAT officers then entered the home and took them into custody without further incident.

Both men were charged with aggravated burglary and vandalism. They’re being held in lieu of $80,000 bond.

Metro police reported that at the time of Redmon’d arrest, he was free on $75,000 bond stemming from a March arrest when he allegedly refused to stop when an officer found him driving 87 in a 50 mph zone.

He ultimately wrecked on 45th Avenue North and was found hiding under a house on Illinois Avenue. He was charged with evading arrest and cocaine possession.
