NASHVILLE, Tenn. – An Antioch man recently added to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation's Top Ten Most Wanted list has been captured in south Nashville.

Metro Police officers serving on the U.S. Marshal's Fugitive Task Force arrested 19-year-old Dequan H. Bertrand around 7:45 a.m. Thursday at a relative's home on Rural Hill Road.

Bertrand was wanted by the Brentwood Police Department and the TBI. 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.

Investigators said Bertrand used a credit card that was stolen in a home invasion on Moores Lane in Brentwood on October 12.

Brentwood Police said two men forced their way into the home, and held one of the residents at gunpoint while the other ransacked the house. Before leaving, they forced the residents into a bathroom.

The men got away with approximately $2,400 in items.

Two other men, 19-year-old Brian Frelix and 20-year-old Justin Howell, have already been charged with kidnapping, aggravated robbery, and aggravated burglary in connection with the case.

Investigators said Bertrand is also under investigation by the Belle Meade Police Department and the Metro Nashville Police Department for similar crimes.

Bertrand was booked in the Williamson County Jail on $750,000 bond.
