Nashville PD arrests Mt. Vernon man following brief pursuit

NASHVILLE, Ill. — Nashville police had a brief pursuit Tuesday of a 23-year-old Mt. Vernon man wanted on an outstanding Jefferson County warrant.

According to Nashville police, they received information from the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office that Davon McLorn was wanted and that he was known to be working in Nashville.

Officers went to the place of employment, and while they were inside the warehouse McLorn reportedly fled the building.

Officers engaged in a brief vehicle pursuit but McLorn quickly surrendered without further incident. McLorn was sentenced in 2013 to six years in prison after he pleaded guilty to the lesser Class 1 felony charge against him of residential burglary.

He had also been facing Class X felony home invasion and Class 1 aggravated robbery for a string of events that included armed robbery of a delivery driver at O’Reilly’s, Huck’s and a residence on North Bentley Street in Mt. Vernon. The three crimes occurred within an hour of one another in the early morning hours of February 20, 2013.
