Hamilton County deputies arrested burglary suspects by chance after pulling over a vehicle because of malfunctioning tag lights on July 25.

When deputies walked up to the vehicle, they noticed the rear seat passenger making very sudden movements. They also saw him stuff something into a back pack. 

While at the window, deputies noticed a large knife lying out in the car. They also said both occupants, identified as Margaret Fish and Roderick Myer, were acting extremely nervous. They were described as "breathing heavily" and giving "evasive" answers.

When deputies asked them to get out of the vehicle, they found another man's driver's license in a pocket.

They said Myer was also in possession of a phone that did not belong to him. 

When deputies made contact with the owner of the phone, the man told them he had in fact been robbed.

He said he had come home from work on that same day only to find multiple items had been taken. 

In addition to the phone, a game system, video games, a digital camera, remote control airplanes, multiple DVDs, and a crock pot were also stolen.

When the man arrived, Ms. Fish requested to talk to him. She told him she was very sorry and that she needed money because she owed her drug dealer several thousand dollars. 

She also told the man that they had used a credit card to get into the house and said nothing was damaged in the process.

She and Myer were both charged with aggravated burglary and theft over $2,000.

Embrace America - And Response (2)

Okay, Hollywierd we get it. The world of entertainment and cinema arts do not support President Trump. But for all their derisive and divisive speech, truth remains. People who support conservative values do not hate children, we do not hate immigrants, we do not hate other races and ethnicities although that is all you trumpet at every opportunity.  What we do support ...

Roy Exum: Way 'Over The Line'

Every day last week a Chattanooga woman sent me a press release for a “Recess Week of Action,” which was the greatest example of “an exercise in futility” that I can recall in recent years. I absolutely refuse to attend, write, or publicize such a group of admittedly-questionable political agitators. Please, I have never seen anything like this! Sometime soon, I suspect, the truth ...
