COSBY-Robert Louis Cody, 73, 322 Greasy Cove Road, Cosby,
thwarted the theft of items from his property on Thursday by blocking a truck
in his driveway, then waiting for officers from the Cocke County Sheriff's
Department to arrive.
According to Dep. Andy Tritt, when officers arrived they
found Ashley Marcum, 23, 339 Leaf Way, Newport; Sheila Proffitt, 41, 354 Midway
Road, Del Rio; and Crystal McGraw, 26, 246 Larmie Circle, Newport, with items
they had loaded into a truck.
The items were a watering trough, an old empty fuel tank,
and a truck toolbox. According to Tritt, the women told him "a male
subject who lived at the end of the road" had given his permission for
them to "pick the items up."
