Residents arrested after SWAT team called to Antioch home over weekend

ANTIOCH, Tenn. (WKRN) – In a bizarre twist of events, a couple living in the Antioch home where an armed man was believed to be barricaded over the weekend have been arrested.

The incident happened at a home on Strand Fleet Drive around 3:30 p.m. on Saturday.

Police said 28-year-old Maya Wilson called 911 after a man approached her in her yard and raised his shirt to show her a gun.

She told police the suspect said “give it up” before grabbing her by the hair and attempted to pull her inside the home.

Wilson was able to elude him and ran to a neighbor’s house where she called police. She told police the suspect had ran inside her home where a 10-month-old baby was inside sleeping.

SWAT officers responded to the home to assist with the search. Officers sent a robot into the home to verify the safety of the baby and discovered the suspect was not inside.

The baby was then removed from the home while police searched the area for the suspect.

As they searched the home, officers saw in plain view pills and pistols. They obtained a warrant and found hundreds of Oxymorphone pills packaged for resale, drug sale ledgers, digital scales and 2 pistols, one of which, and a nine millimeter Beretta that came back as being stolen from Giles County.

Wilson was charged with possession of Oxymorphone for resale, gun possession in commission of a drug felony, theft, unlawful use of drug paraphernalia and misdemeanor possession of 5 Suboxone pills.

Her boyfriend, 27-year-old Randi Hill, also lived in the home and was charged with possession of Oxymorphone for resale, theft, gun possession in commission of a drug felony, unlawful gun possession by a person previously convicted of domestic violence, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The Tennessee Department of Children’s Services was notified of this investigation.

Police said the would-be robber has not been identified.
