At least two juveniles are being investigated in the vandalism and burglary of the Masonic Lodge on South Main Street. Crossville Police were called Sunday to the Lodge after a door was discovered forced open. Police say the word “KILLUMINITA” was engraved on another door. The word seems to be a variation of “killuminati”, a term coined by Tupac Shakur that means kill the Illuminati. Police say the Masonic Lodge had been thoroughly ransacked, with windows broken and numerous items destroyed and stolen. During their investigation, police learned that a juvenile had been talking at school about Killuminita, the Illuminati, and the Masonic Organization. Police made contact with the juvenile, who upon questioning, allegedly told police where several stolen items could be located. The suspect also reportedly named another juvenile suspect. Authorities say shoe prints left at the scene match both suspects. Authorities have returned some stolen items to Lodge personnel. Charges are pending against the juveniles and the investigation is ongoing. Because of their ages, their names have not been released.
Crossville Police were called to a home on Maranatha Lane on Friday after a vehicle crashed into the structure. The victim told police that a gold GMC Jimmy had rolled down the hill and struck a gas and heat unit. The male driver fled the scene before police arrived. A check of the vehicle’s registration revealed the suspect gave the homeowner a false name, phone number and insurance information. Police have named no suspects in the case. Damage was estimated at $5,000.
A sleepy burglar made himself at home after breaking into a Maranatha Lane residence. The homeowner told Crossville Police that he had just evicted a renter and had gone to the property to let the renter’s sister retrieve some belongings. When he arrived, he noticed the door had been forced open. Upon entering the residence, the owner discovered an unknown male asleep in the bed. The burglar woke up and walked out as the victim called police. At the time of the report, the suspect was still at large. Damage was estimated at $100.
