Homeless people face charges


Two people who told Shelbyville police they’re homeless were arrested Tuesday after officers discovered they were wanted in other areas.  

Police were called after a report the suspects had spent a long time at outdoor tables at Speedway, Madison Street.  

The two allegedly gave Officer Chris Vest false names, but Officer Matt Sharp found their actual names on Facebook and warrant checks were run.  

Vest found Joseph Dakota Medley, 24, and Jennifer Nicole Britten, 30, later in the day at the old Rite Aid building on Madison Street.  

Medley, who had active warrants from Alabama and Coffee County, allegedly had a bag containing crystal methamphetamine and glass pipes. He told Vest the bag was found in the roadway.  

Britten was wanted in Marshall County for violation of probation.  

Medley was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and criminal impersonation and held on $3,500 bond.  

Britten was charged with criminal impersonation and held on $1,500 bond.  

Not actual escape  

A suspect being sought for what’s listed on a warrant as “jail escape” was arrested Tuesday by Shelbyville police.  

Jessica Dean Barrett, 24, was riding in a vehicle seen by Detective Nathaniel Everhart pulling out of a business parking lot.  

Everhart and Officer Matt Sharp stopped the vehicle and arrested Barrett without incident.  

Barrett didn’t actually escape from jail, the Bedford County Sheriff’s Office said.  

She was ordered to go through a rehab program and allegedly stopped attending before completion, which is legally termed a form of jail escape.
