EPD and JCPB recover stolen vehicle

From Staff Reports

   Officers from the Elizabethton Police Department as well as the Johnson City Police Department were able to recover a car Tuesday night that had been reported stolen earlier that day.
   Danielle Nicole Redmon, 114 S. Lynn Ave., Apt. C, reported to EPD Ptl. Tonya Range that just after 10 a.m. Tuesday, a male subject known to her entered her apartment uninvited and then asked to borrow her vehicle. She stated that she told him, "No," and then took the keys and attempted to leave in the vehicle to prevent him from taking it.
   Redmon reported the man then busted the back windshield out of her 1987 bronze Z-29 Chevrolet Cavalier and took the vehicle. She told the officer that she believed he was going to a residence on Wilson Avenue in Johnson City. Redmon gave Range the registration information on the vehicle to aid in the investigation.
   The EPD then notified the JCPB of the stolen vehicle and relayed the vehicle's registration as well as its possible destination of Wilson Avenue.
   Just before 7 p.m. Tuesday, EPD Cpt. Smithdeal contacted EPD Ptl. John Ramsey and told him that Johnson City officers believed they had located the stolen vehicle.
   Ramsey went to an address on Wilson Avenue and met with JCPB PSO Kneaskern and PSO Cogan who stated that they had located the vehicle in an alley behind the residence.
   Ramsey inspected the vehicle and identified it as the one reported stolen. He had the car towed to a secure storage to allow the EPD Criminal Investigations Division time to process it for evidence.
