East Ridge Police Take 3 Into Custody After Stolen Truck Report

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

Acting on a report of a stolen truck, East Ridge Police late Wednesday afternoon took three people into custody.

At 5:21 p.m., East Ridge Police responded to 1518 Prigmore Road on a report of multiple parties stealing a vehicle. Police arrived at 5:25 p.m. and made contact with the complainant, 35-year-old Ricky Rogers of Jasper, Tn. 

Mr. Rogers indicated to police that his friend’s truck had been stolen and was concealed behind an exterior garage at this location. As police approached the truck and spotted seven individuals around the truck, Rogers continually yelled that the truck was stolen. 

Upon seeing police approaching, three of the seven individuals around the truck immediately fled the scene on foot. Police apprehended Monica Dunn, 25, of Chattanooga, and Jeffery King, 28, of Rossville,  on the property of Fellowship Baptist Church at 5335 Clemons Road. King was tased prior to being taken into custody. 

Randy Morgan, 24, of East Ridge, was apprehended in the 1500 block of Karwill Lane. 

All three were charged with resisting stop/halt/frisk. Monica Dunn was additionally charged with criminal impersonation for having initially given police a false name and date of birth. 

The truck in question was found to belong to Raymond Carter of Morrison, Tn., who had loaned it to a friend who failed to return it. The truck was not listed in NCIC as a stolen vehicle, and there were no charges filed in relation to possession of the vehicle.

Ricky Rogers, a friend of Raymond Carter, told police he had received a tip from someone as to the current location of the truck. Rogers refused to provide police with any further information. 

Carter gave permission over the phone for Rogers to leave the scene with the vehicle. 

The resident at 1518 Prigmore knew none of the people involved. Randy Morgan had traveled to that location in the truck to visit his uncle who was hired by the resident to do some tree work at the property.
