Four individuals allegedly responsible for attempting to steal an ATM machine Tuesday night are being held at the Wilson County Jail on charges of theft, aggravated assault and vandalism, with a court date for all four set on Nov. 22.

Kelvin Lamar Scott, 37, of 380 Tyron Drive, Mt. Juliet, is being held at the jail on $35,000 bond. Scotty Wayne Campbell, 18, of 226 Whitnell Drive in Mt. Juliet is being held on $35,000 bond and the third individual, Bobby Lee Heady, 18, of 3663 Trousdale Ferry Pike in Lebanon is being held on $35,000 bond as well.

The fourth, Landon Travis Marek, 19, of 3663 Trousdale Ferry Pike in Lebanon, is being held on $75,000 bond.

Tuesday night, the group allegedly attempted to steal the ATM machine from the BP gas station on Linwood Drive, just off Interstate 40. They reportedly broke the service station window and tried pulling the ATM out of the window with a truck.

A witness, who was sleeping in his car at the time, reportedly heard the commotion and called the authorities. The witness said the group started shooting at him with paintball guns after they discovered him in the parking lot. The witness reportedly sustained no injuries.

Earlier this month, the Wilson County Sheriffs Department and Mt. Juliet Police Department cooperated in an investigation involving stolen four wheelers, which led to the arrest of Campbell and Marek.

The pair allegedly stole several four wheelers, which were reported stolen on Oct. 7 and found on Burton Road. Marek and Campbell were said to be returning to the location of the stolen four wheelers when authorities arrested them. They both were released on bond in that incident, Marek on Oct. 11 and Campbell on Oct. 14.
