Only one road in Cumberland County is closed and that is perhaps the most dangerous project…East Cove Road in Cumberland Cove. The devastating floods have left a hole over 20 feet deep and the Cumberland County Highway Department says this is worst road that crews will repair. The massive pipes were ordered on Friday and County road crews are expected to start work on Monday. The East Cove Road project is expected to take at least two days, weather permitting.

Crossville Police are asking the public’s help in identifying a shoplifting suspect. Police say tht just before 2 a.m. Wednesday a white male suspect, wearing a yellow sweat shirt and tan hat, entered the Crossville WalMart, selected multiple items from around the store and exited the store without paying. Items taken included soft drinks, a clothes hamper, two air rifles, seat covers, shoes and clothing. The suspect quickly left the parking lot in a green two door vehicle, possibly a Chevy Monte Carlo. Police have posted multiple photos of the suspect and his vehicle on the Crossville Crimestoppers Facebook page, which include other pictures of the suspect from an earlier theft at another WalMart. If you think that you recognize either the suspect or vehicle, or if you have any information on this crime, please contact Det. Donnie Hammons with the Crossville Police Department at 931-484-7231 or LT. Brian Eckelson with Crimestoppers at 931-200-1173. (Photo Courtesy Crossville Crimestoppers)
Crossville police expect to file additional charges against a burglary suspect. According to a Press Release sent by Lt. Brian Eckelson of the Crossville Police Department, 32 year old Daryl Stephen Hall was arrested Wednesday July 8th by Patrolman Camden Davis for Burglary at a Pinewood Drive residence. Hall is one of many suspects that have been recently indicted by the Cumberland County Grand Jury for drug trafficking, following an on-going criminal investigation by narcotics detectives with the Crossville Police Department. Hall was specifically indicted for Manufacture, Sale or Delivery of a controlled substance; Methamphetamine. Hall was served with the indictment following the burglary arrest and is currently being held at the Cumberland County Jail, pending criminal trial. Additional drug trafficking indictments will be served in the coming days, as part of an effort by the Crossville Police Department to rid the city of drug activity and the dangers to society and families that are associated with drug activity.

The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office has received a report of another telephone scam. This time, the callers are telling victims that they are representatives of the Sheriff's Office. They're even using a program that displays a Sheriff's Office phone number. The scammers tell the victim that they have an active warrant for their arrest. Scammers then offer to "take care" of the warrant if the victim will agree to pay a fee. Representatives of the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office state that their office will never call individuals and inform them that they are wanted. That practice would serve no legitimate law enforcement purpose. Additionally, they will never offer to "take care" of any arrest warrant if an exchange of money is made. That action is not only unethical, but is also illegal. If you, or someone you know, receives a call similar to this, please contact the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office and Investigator Hamby at (931) 484-6176 or call Crimestoppers at (931) 200-1173.
The Crossville City Council in regular session Thursday approved the first reading of an ordinance that, among other things, would allow swimming at Meadow Park Lake. The ordinance also requires that persons wishing to boat or fish on the lake must obtain a permit from the Lake Commission. The ordinance must undergo two more readings before it is final.
