3 Johnson County residents were arrested on Saturday, December 10 after being caught removing items from an office building located on a poultry farm on County Road 3589.
At approximately 7:10 a.m. the owner of the farm was checking his houses when he noticed a subject exit the office building with items in his hands. The owner yelled for the subject to stop but the subject jumped into a Nissan SUV with two others and attempted to flee.
The farm owner attempted to block the SUV in with his truck but was unable and the three fled toward highway 21 with the owner following them.
The owner called 911 while he followed them south on Highway 21 and county and city units converged on the vehicles. The SUV was stopped on Oak Street in Clarksville and all three occupants were taken into custody by Deputy Tim Wages and Detective Sgt. Jeff Wood.
An inventory of the vehicle revealed items taken from the farm office as well as items that had been taken from a gas well location and an East Johnson County water pump station, items which had not been reported stolen at that time.
Arrested were Andie Lynn Johnson, age 21 of Knoxville is charged with Commercial Burglary (3 Counts), Criminal Mischief (3 Counts) and Theft of Property (3 Counts).
Bradley Mann Rogers, age 20, of Lamar is charged with Commercial Burglary (3 Counts), Criminal Mischief (3 Counts), Theft of Property (3 Counts) and a separate Residential Burglary and Theft of Property charge from a previous case.
Matthew David Keylon, age 23 of Knoxville is charged with Commercial Burglary (3 Counts), Criminal Mischief (3 Counts) and Theft of Property (3 Counts). Keylon is also charged with Residential Burglary and Theft of Property charge from a previous case.
All subjects will have bond hearings and an initial court date of January 6, 2012 in Johnson County Circuit Court.
