NEWPORT-A Kodak man was arrested Sunday, Nov. 25, and charged in the theft of household items from a Newport couple who live on Highway 25E, the Cocke County Sheriff's Department reported.

Deputy Sheriff Zach Shelton said the suspect apparently returned to the residence on Nov. 25 to steal more items when Shelton spotted him turn around in the driveway and leave. A brief chase ensued before the suspect was stopped.

Over $27,000 worth of items were stolen, sometime between 6 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 24, and the afternoon of Sunday, Nov. 25, the report stated.
