Former Sheriff’s Deputy Nabbed in TBI Theft, Misconduct Case


Former Sheriff’s Deputy Nabbed in TBI Theft, Misconduct Case
TBI: Josh DeVine Wednesday April 1, 2015

Special Agents from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation have obtained indictments for a former Scott County Sheriff’s Department deputy accused of misconduct. TBI Special Agents began investigating Cody Scott Yancey last October. During the course of the investigation, Agents developed information that on several occasions between September 22nd and October 14th, Yancey made illegal entry into his department’s temporary evidence storage and removed multiple pieces of drug evidence. The investigation further revealed Yancey changed locks on the evidence storage box on two occasions and illegally entered detectives’ offices. The department subsequently terminated Yancey’s employment. Tuesday, the Scott County Grand Jury returned indictments for the 25-year-old Helenwood man, charging him with three counts of Burglary, one count of Theft under $500, one count of Possession of Burglary Tools, one count of Official Misconduct, one count of Tampering with Evidence, two counts of Attempted Tampering with Evidence, and two counts of Vandalism under $500. This afternoon, he was booked into the Scott County Jail on $10,000 bond.

TBI: Susan Niland Wednesday April 1, 2015

Just hours after being placed on the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation’s Top Ten Most Wanted list, Desiree Alexus Hester was arrested in Nashville. Hester, 19, was taken into custody around 9:00 p.m. CST Tuesday after Special Agents developed information as to her whereabouts. The arrest was a joint effort with the TBI and the U.S. Marshals Service. Hester was added to the Top Ten list late Tuesday afternoon. She was wanted by the Chattanooga Police Department on charges of Carjacking and Aggravated Assault. On March 30th, Hester, Tyrell Flenoy and three females were pursued by the Georgia State Police into Chattanooga. Hester and Flenoy fled the vehicle after the pursuit. Shortly afterward, Hester committed a carjacking, striking the victim with the car as she fled the scene. She was believed to be traveling with Flenoy. He was not with her at the time of her arrest. Desiree Hester is currently being booked at the Davidson County Jail, where a hold will be placed on her until her transfer to Hamilton County.

Cumberland County Archives Searching For Old Pictures of School and Church Buildings
Tuesday March 31, 2015

Not too many years ago, each little community in Cumberland County had a school and one or more churches identified with it. Most of those old school buildings have either disappeared or been converted to other use. The same fate has happened to many of the old community churches. Each of these only remain as memories in the minds of older Cumberland County residents, or hidden away in collections of old photos. The Cumberland County Archives and Family Heritage Center would like to collect these memories and share them with the younger generations. As a part of the Archives’ booth at the County Fair this year, they hope to present a video of these old school and church buildings, and they need your help. They ask that if you have a photo of an old school or church building that you let them make copies of it. They would do this at the Archive’s building next to the Art Circle Public Library in the building that was First Baptist Church. Staff would be there and available from 9-4 on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. You can stop by with your pictures on any of these days, or call ahead to make an appointment at 456-2006.
