Arrest made in burglary, break-in investigated

Patrolman Logan Carpenter checks items as he prepares a report concerning the recent burglary at Livingston First United Methodist Church.

A Livingston man has been taken into custody following a burglary at Livingston First United Methodist Church on Roberts Street.

At approximately 3:10 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 20, Livingston Patrolman Logan Carpenter arrested Timmy Allen Cope, of Goodpasture Street, and charged him with the burglary.

According to reports, Cope was walking in the area when Patrolman Carpenter stopped him. Items stolen in the burglary were allegedly discovered on Cope.

Cope was charged with burglary and theft of property from the sanctuary area of the church and the burglary and theft of property and items from the church's Life Center. Cope was also charged with an additional count of theft of property from a Speck Funeral Home vehicle earlier this month, in which scuba equipment belonging to Stuart Parsons was reported taken and has been allegedly recovered in Cope's residence along with a digital camera.

Cope was lodged in Overton County Jail on a $7,000 bond.

Shortly after the Cope arrest, Livingston Police answered a silent alarm at Super Discount Drugs on West Main Street at 3:55 a.m.

The front door of the business had been smashed. A quantity of Vicodan pills, Viagara pills, and Clonepan pills were reported taken. The pills were packaged in large pharmaceutical bottles.

Persons with tips concerning the burglary, or any other crimes, are urged to contact Livingston Police through Post Office Box 236.

The front door of Super Discount Drugs was shattered early Wednesday, Sept. 20. Drugs were reported missing.
