54-year-old Ning Wang is charged with aggravated criminal trespass after police say he showed up at the back door of his ex-wife’s residence on Tyne Blvd and refused to leave on November 2nd. He continued to knock on the back door, demanding to be let in, despite having not lived there in quite some time. Officers responded to similar incidents several times this year, the most recent in October, and Wang understood he was not allowed to be on the property but continued to return.
Metro Nashville Police responded to a home on 11th Ave N. on Monday after Rachel Elrod called to report her ex-boyfriend, 31-year-old Jezreel Castillo, was attempting to gain entry to her home. Castillo was able to make entry into the attached garage but was unable to make entry into the living area as the interior door lock was engaged. Elrod says Castillo then began to text and call her repeatedly — 15 times within 30 minutes in a threatening and harassing manner, leaving her in fear for her life. He fled prior to police arriving but was booked on the charges a few hours later.
19-year-old Joshua Gupton was jailed this weekend on an outstanding warrant from June, charging him with aggravated criminal trespass. Metro Nashville Police initially responded to the home of Urjita Khera when she reported she was lying on her couch when she heard someone enter her residence through the side window of her home. When she stood up, it spooked the intruder, and they fled, closing the window behind them. Luckily, she had recently cleaned the windows, and investigators were able to pull a fresh set of prints from the glass. They came back to Joshua Upton, who had his spring on file from a juvenile arrest history of theft and residential burglaries. His home is only 1.2 miles from the victim’s residence, and her front door camera captures him walking up the front stairs and around the side of the home to the window.
31-year-old Dusty Hallock is free on a $6,000 bond, but that’s after weeks of his ex-girlfriend begging police to even arrest him. The couple broke up in February, and he has refused to stop contacting her. The victim, Courtney Baird, has made report after report of his activities thru March when she also obtained an order of protection which was not served. In late March, she also obtained a criminal stalking warrant which was unserved until his current arrest. She was afraid to even return to her own apartment for most of the month of March, and when she did the locks had been changed, however, her management confirmed they didn’t make the changes, and it wasn’t even their type of locks. When she returned she heard audible pings from inside her closet and discovered an Apple AirTag had been hidden inside a purse, and her clothing had been disturbed. She was then near Smyrna when she got an alert she was being tracked by another AirTag, and alerted authorities there, who located it attached to her vehicle with a magnet. Hallock was eventually arrested this week, spending a few hours before bonding out on the charges of stalking, motor vehicle tracking, and aggravated criminal trespass.
