Marijuana Suspect Busted
Jay Walker Thursday September 18, 2014

Local authorities have arrested a Dibrell man after finding an alleged marijuana growing operation at his home. 45 year old Rick Leroy Randall of Gay Road was picked up and charged with manufacture, delivery and sale of a controlled substance.
Sheriff Jackie Matheny said the arrest came as a result of a joint operation by the Sheriff's Department, McMinnville Police, the TBI and the District Attorney's office.
Officers executed a search warrant Tuesday and discovered 41 marijuana plants, along with equipment needed for a growing operation, including growing lights, pots and other items.
Sheriff Matheny said Randall recently moved to Warren County from California and has a record of arrests in other states.
His bond was set at $50,000 and he will appear in court on September 23rd.

 


Federal Mogul Thief Sentenced
Wednesday September 17, 2014

One of three men accused of stealing thousands of dollars worth of copper from Federal Mogul in Smithville last year entered a guilty plea this week and was sentenced in DeKalb County Criminal Court.
48 year old Martin Riley, III was given a five-year sentence after pleading guilty to theft of property.
The other two suspects were sentenced in February.
Smithville police said the thefts occurred from December 2012 to August 2013 at night after the second shift when there was no one else at the plant.
The men allegedly sold the copper to a scrap iron business in McMinnville.
Authorities said the men stole more than $100,000 worth of copper and brass from the plant.

 


Criminal Justice Hearings
AP Wednesday September 17, 2014

The chairman of a legislative panel examining criminal justice reform in Tennessee says he will share information from hearings this week with a special task force the governor has appointed.
Sen. Brian Kelsey heads the Senate Judiciary Committee. It held two hearings this week to gather information from attorneys, law enforcement officials and criminal justice advocates.
Many of the presenters during the hearings said the state's sentencing structure, which has been in place for more than 20 years, needs to be reviewed.
They also said more programs are needed to help inmates while they're incarcerated so they have a better chance of staying out of prison. Tennessee's repeat offender rate is about 46 percent.

 


Social Security Statements
AP Wednesday September 17, 2014

The Social Security Administration has resumed mailing statements to workers letting them know the estimated benefits they will get when they retire.
Social Security began phasing out mailed statements to most workers in 2011 to save an estimated $70 million a year. Instead, the agency directed workers to track their future benefits online using a secure website.
Congress, however, passed a bill last year requiring Social Security to resume mailing the statements.
The first statements were mailed out Monday.
