During routine patrol, a deputy with the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office was making a traffic stop involving a Chevrolet S10 Truck. When the driver stopped the vehicle, he immediately jumped and ran into a wooded area off Highway 27 in Sale Creek.  

Deputies initiated a search and cordoned off a large area between Patterson Road and Highway 27 and called for a search dog. The vehicle was determined to be stolen from an address just a few blocks from the area where the suspect was first observed by deputies.

Sale Creek Middle and High Schools were notified and locked all doors so that no one could enter the school for the safety of students and staff.  

Deputies searched the area and had one sighting of the suspect, but information became available fairly early to identify him along with a possible address.

The suspect was identified as Josh Sharber, 24, who is described as having blue eyes, brown hair and wearing khaki shorts with a gray sweatshirt. 

Warrants were obtained for theft of an auto and evading arrest involving this incident and it was determined he already had outstanding warrants involving narcotics.

Anyone with information or knowledge on the whereabouts of Josh Sharber is asked to call the Sheriff’s dispatcher at 423 622-0022.

You’re Right With Lamar

One of Tennessee’s favorite sons, Davy Crockett, coined an oft-used phrase:  “Be always sure you’re right, then go ahead.” Being sure is quite important, but may be difficult in this election cycle. The Democratic nominee campaigning against Lamar Alexander is a man whose radio ads call for “change,” “fair” taxes and more jobs.  Sounds good, huh?   ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Troubling Jameis Winston
