Police Blotter: Man Gone 4-Wheeling Finds Car Partially Burned, Gas Missing; Massage Service Does Not Go That Far

Tuesday, May 06, 2014

A man who said he parked his truck by the roadway on River Gorge Drive in Lookout Valley and then went four-wheeling said he returned to find the driver's side of his vehicle burned and his gas siphoned.

Blake Snyder said he left his Ford F250 near Hawks Nest Drive.

When he got back from his outing on nearby Aetna Mountain, he said he found the fire department putting out a brush fire by his truck. He said his vehicle still runs, but it has some $7,000 in damage on the exterior from the fire.

He said when he left he had half a gallon of gas, but he found it was gone when he tried to leave.

That section at Black Creek (formerly Cummings Cove) has seen constant friction between property owners and those going four-wheeling.

A man living on Booth Road said he heard gunfire during the night. However, he thought it was some distance away.

However, the next morning he found that a single bullet had gone into the front of his truck.

It damaged his air conditioner, nose cone, radiator and hood latch.

Robin Morris said she left her keys and purse in her car while she went to church at 2201 Hickory Valley Road.

Her items were gone when she went back outside.

A woman at Massage Heights said she was giving a massage to John Swafford when he asked if she would work on his private area.

He told her "he needed some relief there too."

She said she told him her establishment "doesn't do that kind of stuff." She left the room.

The customer paid and left.

She advised police she did not want to prosecute, but just make a report.
