Armed robbery

   * Jamie Elaine Duncan, 21, 1484 Milligan Hwy., Johnson City, reported Wednesday to Elizabethton Police Department Ptl. Jennifer Mayberry that she had received a telephone call around 4 a.m. from a male who repeatedly asked questions about who was with her and where her son was. About 10 minutes later, Duncan said she heard a knock on the door and looked out the peephole, but it was covered. She said she opened the door but had her foot helping to hold it from opening all the way. Duncan said a male subject was outside and another male stepped in front of the door, stuck his arm inside and pushed the door open. In all, three subjects entered the residence: a white male wearing a blue and white jacket and toboggan with his face mostly covered, and a black male with braids and mustache. Duncan could not describe the third subject. She told the officer the black male brandished a pistol in his right hand and asked where her money was. Without being told its location, he then went to the drawer where it was kept and took $400 cash and a cell phone. Duncan said she observed the subjects go around the west side of the building and get into an occupied vehicle.

Burglary

   * EPD Ptl. Brooke Mullins responded Monday to Arts Finer Homes, 1581 Hwy. 19E Bypass, regarding two mobile homes that had been broken into. According to Manager Richard Sluder, when employees arrived for work, they found two mobile homes with broken windows; the front door had been kicked in on one of them. Sluder said several picture frames and a coffee table had been stolen.
   * CCSD Lt. Mike Fraley was dispatched Tuesday to International Homes, 4075 Hwy. 19E, regarding a burglary. The officer found that the security system line at the main office had been cut, however, nothing was taken. A double-wide mobile home was entered by breaking the rear window and a bamboo chest was taken but recovered near the business. It was unknown at the time of the report whether anything else was missing.

Harassment

   * Andrea N. Stout, 22, 404 Ridgecrest Drive, reported Tuesday to EPD Ptl. Mike Sproviero that she had received a phone call from National Check Control about a check she had written in 1999. The call was left on her answering machine and advised a number to call. When she contacted them, she spoke with a male subject who told her she owed them $137 and she needed to wire the money immediately by Western Union or she was going to jail. When Stout tried to find out more about the check, the man became angry and told her the check was from Roadrunner Market #201 and that it had been turned over to local law enforcement and the district attorney's office. Stout contacted Roadrunner and they advised they did not have her name on record as writing a bad check. She then contacted the DA's office, police and sheriff's department to inquire whether charges had been placed against her and was advised there were no charges. Ptl. Sproviero then contacted the check agency to verify the information and spoke with a male subject who identified himself as Mr. Davis. When Ptl. Sproviero identified himself as a law enforcement officer, Davis became very rude and would not give the officer any information. "He said several choice words and hung the phone up," according to the report.
