A Crossville man and woman have been named as suspects after thieves stole everything but the kitchen sink from a Bradford Drive mobile home. Crossville Police responded to the burglary call on Tuesday and discovered that someone has stolen the air conditioning unit, copper plumbing pipe, storm door, insulation and duct work from the trailer. Loss was estimated at $1,450. Crossville Detective Danny Harris found the items at a local scrap metal business and the person who sold them was identified as Russell Ray Hoffmeyer, 38, of Ostego Road. 30-year old Ashley Smith-Edwards, of Bradford Drive, was a passenger in Hoffmeyer’s vehicle. According to police reports, the pair stated since no one lived in the mobile home, they decided to take the items because they needed money. Police were able to recover some of the items, however, the copper pipe had already been put in a scrap container. Detective Hancock is continuing the investigation because other mobile homes in the area have been burglarized.
