The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has a new addition to the state’s Top 10 Most Wanted list, Dequan Hasani Bertrand of Antioch, Tn.

Bertrand is wanted by the Brentwood Police Department and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. Currently, Brentwood Police have charged Bertrand with one felony count of especially aggravated kidnapping, one felony count of aggravated robbery and one felony count of aggravated burglary.

On Oct. 12, at approximately 7:40 p.m., two male suspects forced their way into a residence on Moores Lane in Brentwood, Tn. Upon forceful entry of the home, one suspect held members of the residence at gunpoint, while the other suspect ransacked the house. Prior to leaving the home, the suspects forced the members of the residence into a bathroom. The total of the items stolen were valued at approximately $2,400. 

Further investigation revealed that the victim’s credit card was used, which led to Bertrand’s identification in this case. Bertrand is currently under investigation by the Belle Meade Police Department and the Metro Nashville Police Department for similar crimes.

Bertrand, 19, of Davidson County, has a last known address of 181 Tusculum Road in Antioch, Tn. He is described as an African American male with black hair and brown eyes. He is approximately six feet tall and weighs about 170 pounds.

Bertrand has a criminal history of theft and a juvenile arrest record. Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Bertrand is urged to call TBI at 800-TBI-FIND (800 824-3463) or the Brentwood Police Department at 615 371-0160. There is a $1,000 reward for information leading to his arrest.
