Wednesday, January 23, 2013

David Gosnell has been arrested in East Ridge, for criminal impersonation and auto burglary. 

East Ridge Police, patrolling the area of the 6700 block of Ringgold Road, on Wednesday, at approximately 12:40 a.m., observed a vehicle which matched the description of one used in connection with a criminal investigation in Walker County. 

The vehicle was stopped and the driver initially told officers his name was David Green. Officers, however, knew his name to be David Gosnell, 46, of Chickamauga, from previous encounters with him. Gosnell was transported to the Hamilton County Jail where he was charged with criminal impersonation.

Later in the morning, East Ridge Tactical Patrol officers investigating Gosnell, also found the vehicle Gosnell was driving matched the description of one used during a burglary of an auto which occurred on Jan. 17, at the Taco Bell restaurant at 6200 Ringgold Road. 

After their investigation, Gosnell was also charged with burglary of an auto in connection with this incident. 

The investigation is ongoing by other area law enforcement agencies and further charges are pending. 

Gosnell is scheduled to appear in East Ridge Municipal Court on Tuesday, Feb. 12, at 5 p.m.
