33-year-old Raymond Black was charged with aggravated burglary, vandalism, harassment, and conditions of release violation after two separate incidents, one involving his ex-girlfriend and another at a Goodlettsville motel.
On September 27th, Metro Nashville Police officers were dispatched to 669 Cheyenne Boulevard in reference to a vandalism. Tequila Herrod told police her ex-boyfriend, Raymond Black, damaged her car because he’s upset she doesn’t want to talk to him anymore. Tequila showed police text messages Black had sent threatening her safety, as well as directly stating he damaged her vehicle.
Police viewed text messages that read “look at your window bitch” and “I just got u.” Other messages included “I’m go bus your front and back bitch”, “I’m coming back watch hoe”, “Ok bitch I’m go be at your job Monday bitch why I’m go get u fired watch”, and “go to sleep so I can get u.” Tequila’s vehicle was parked in front of her apartment and was observed yo have a broken rear driver side window with a large cement chunk on the passenger seat.
On October 1st, Goodlettsville Police officers were dispatched to America’s Best Value Inn located at 622 Rivergate Parkway for a burglary. Upon arrival, police made contact with Otis Hollins who told them he returned to his hotel room after work and discovered his laptop was missing. Hollins was able to provide police with a serial number for his stolen property and the front desk had video evidence of the incident.
The footage showed Raymond Black exited room 106 and noticed Hollins’ hotel room door was not completely shut. Black then entered Hollins’ room and left moments later with the laptop before returning to room 106. Management positively identified Black and a search of room 106 produced the missing laptop with matching serial. Black was also discovered to have several outstanding warrants.
Raymond Black was arrested and charged with aggravated burglary. He also had three outstanding warrants for vandalism, harassment, and contempt-conditional bond release violation. He was jailed in lieu of a $100,000 bond until all 4 charges were dropped on October 8th.
