• At 12:11 a.m., Monday, Aug. 23, a complainant called Knox County Sheriff’s Office Teleserve Unit to report a motor vehicle theft at 401 N. Campbell Station Road (Pilot).
Complainant advised he last saw his vehicle at 11:55 p.m., Sunday, Aug. 22, “when he went to purchase an item in the Pilot for the passenger in the vehicle for whom he had purchased a meal,” the report stated.
Complainant said when he returned to the parking lot about five minutes later, he realized both the suspect and vehicle were missing. “Complainant advised he does not know the suspect, he was just trying to help him out,” the report stated.
• At 8:46 p.m., Sunday, Aug. 22, an officer responded to Farragut Presbyterian Church for a possible domestic dispute. Victim said during the previous day “she was downtown driving around a parking lot when she saw her ex-boyfriend/suspect,” a report stated. “She said the suspect immediately began to record her, and left the parking lot at the same time she did. She then continued on her way and he turned down another street. Victim also said she attempted to go to her ‘friend’s’ house, who just happened to live on the same street as the suspect. As she was sitting outside her friend’s house, she noticed that the suspect drove by her and was still recording.”
The victim said she did not speak to the suspect and nothing physical took place yesterday. “She just felt that him ‘following’ and recording her was enough for her to request a report,” the report stated. A domestic blue card was given and explained.
• At 6:16 p.m., Aug. 22, a complainant called KCSO Teleserve Unit to report a theft of merchandise from Walgreens, 601 N. Campbell Station Road. She advised a suspect came into the business with a “Happy Birthday” bag and “proceeded to put (various brands of electronic shaving razors) in the bag and then ran out the door,” the report stated. Estimated retail value of stolen items was listed at $300. Complainant advised she tried stopping the suspect before the suspect left the property in a four-door black vehicle (no other details listed).
• At 9:05 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 21, an officer responded to 11220 Outlet Drive (Cotton Eyed Joe’s) for a domestic matter. Complainant/victim said she saw her ex-boyfriend, the suspect/eventual arrestee, who she has an order of protection against at the location. Officer “then made contact with the eventual arrestee, who said he had been at the establishment for more than an hour and did not know the victim was at the location,” the report stated.
The arrestee also said this has been an ongoing issue, pointing out the victim will contact the arrestee’s friends to see if he is at the bar so she can go and get the arrestee in trouble with law enforcement. “Employees and the owner of the Cotton Eyed Joe backed up the arrestee’s accusations, saying the victim arrived the night before after the arrestee had already been at the bar and started causing a scene wanting the arrestee to be arrested the night before.”
However, “a records check confirmed the arrestee had an active Instanter Attachment … failure to obey court orders. … Arrestee was taken into custody for the active warrant,” the report further stated. “Victim was issued a trespass warning upon the business’ request due to her continually causing issues at the establishment. The victim was advised of her domestic rights.”
