A couple is facing charges after deputies checked out a suspicious car in a Soddy Daisy subdivision.

Gabrielle Autumn Roberts, 29, of 5722 Carmack Road, Hixson, was charged with aggravated burglary, driving on a revoked license, and evading arrest.

Ethan L. Vines, 26, of 11237 Dayton Pike, Soddy Daisy, was charged with aggravated burglary, possession of burglary tools, drug possession and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The Sheriff's Office last Wednesday was advised a female driver was driving a black Honda Civic slowly in the neighborhood. She dropped off a white male, and he was seen going to the back of a residence on Pendall Lane.

She then drove back to pick up the man.

A deputy got in behind the Honda and activated emergency equipment, but the driver refused to stop. It eventually stopped after a chase.

The officer said he told the couple to come out with their hands up. He held them at gunpoint until other officers arrived.

Vines first said he went to a friend's house to pick up a bag. He later admitted he had taken items from a house.

In a gray bag in the vehicle, deputies found $7, a red flash light, gloves, a screw driver, an IPhone, another pair of gloves, a 380 Smith and Wesson body guard gun with a bullet in the chamber and six in the magazine, drug paraphernalia, a green and black gun holster, a silver grinder, a knife, a small scale, a black revolver BB gun and holster, a black hat, prescription medicine for Stephanie Hopper, two watches, three cell phones, figurines, a camera, a silver ring, ear buds and a pink shoe string.

In the house where Vines had entered, deputies found a black hat and a black skull ski mask. The owner said those items were not his.

Roy Exum: The Coach Who Said ‘No’

I couldn’t tell you the first time I met John Gagliardi … 30 years ago? 40? … and I never saw him nearly enough.
