A Shelbyville businessman’s SUV was quickly recovered after a passerby allegedly stole it Wednesday from in front of the old Central High School on Elm Street.
The 2021 Audi SQ8 owned by Gary King, owner of Southern Energy, was parked at midday in front of the former school, which he is restoring. King told Officer Chris Vest a man on a bicycle, later identified as Lee Lambert Warren Jr., 35, of Shoma Drive walked up and started a conversation at one point.
King left in another vehicle and was told at 12:20 p.m. by another family member that the Audi, valued at more than $90,000, was missing.
Audi’s OnStar tracking system traced the SUV to the driveway of a Rock Street residence. Warren allegedly exited the home carrying the Audi’s key and told Vest the vehicle was his.
Warren was charged with theft over $60,000 and held on $10,000 bond.
A man who allegedly angrily resisted a police officer’s orders was arrested Tuesday.
Monsanto Undrez Cannon allegedly became “aggressive and irate” as officers were attempting to handle a situation involving another person in a Lipscomb Street parking lot, Sgt. David Dye’s report said.
Cannon, 46, of Valley Road allegedly attempted to step between Dye and the other person and refused an order to back away. A second order was met with threats and refusal to comply, Dye said.
Dye then told Cannon he was under arrest for disorderly conduct and ordered him to place his hands behind his back. Cannon allegedly refused twice and asked why he was being arrested.
Cannon allegedly “be-came combative” when Dye and Officer Rod Stacy forcibly placed his arms behind his back. He was also charged with resisting arrest and posted $5,500 bond.
A “weird noise” from a bicycle crash ultimately led to a man being charged with simple possession of marijuana Wednesday.
Miguel Quezda, who was bleeding from a cut suffered in the crash, was found on South Main Street with a small bag of marijuana in his clothing. Police searched Quezada as he was being arrested on a charge of failure to appear.
Quezda told Officer Bailey Dineen he wrecked while attempting to jump the bike over stairs at a White Street apartment complex.
The following were charged since Wednesday by the Shelbyville Police Department, Bedford County Sheriff’s Office, Tennessee Highway Patrol or 17th Judicial District Drug Task Force. They are only charged; guilt or innocence will be determined by the courts.
