A Signal Mountain couple who had been burglarized several times help nab the alleged culprits after installing cameras at their E. Brow Road home.

Charged with aggravated burglary and theft over $5,000 were Lydia Hope Carter and Lucas Nakia Brown, both of Marion County.

The owner said trail cameras he installed caught thieves breaking into his garage by breaking a window. There were several images captured of three people inside the garage.

One was a heavy-set white female with a distinctive tattoo on her right arm.

There was also a dark-headed skinny man with a distinctive tattoo around his neck that came to a point on each side of his neck.

The third person was a younger person with longer hair and a hat on backwards.

They were driving a white Hyundai Sonata.

The couple put the images on Facebook and got several responses, identifying Ms. Carter, Brown and the younger person.

Marion County officers also picked out the suspects from the videos.

The car was found to belong to Daniel Evil K. Slatton of 218 Cherry Dr., Whitwell. He said he let Ms. Carter and Brown borrow the car.

He said when they returned they tried to sell him several guns taken from a safe in the garage. He said he told them to get out of his yard with the stolen guns.

He said he later drove Brown to Black Mountain Road in Sequatchie County where the guns were traded for a van.

When Ms. Carter was questioned, she said she would try to get some of the stolen items back for the couple. She said she still had their checkbook.

TVA Land Grab

The Georgetown land grab is just ‘Business as Usual’ for TVA. For the past 80 years they’ve shown their stripes in this matter - 170,000 acres seized at LBL, countless acreage taken in the Tennessee River Valley. Land taken for coal and nuclear sites. All by the same play book. All from average people. We want this, you have this, we get this. I worked with TVA as a ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: USA Today Is Wrong

After spending half of a century in the newspaper business, you will find it universal that one’s “personal ethics” demand you leave children off the news page.

You don’t take a kid’s picture at his daddy’s trial and, more than anything, never publish a word that would cause a child ... (click for more)
