Sheriff’s Dept. investigates store break-in

In the early morning hours of Wednesday, June 9, Overton County Sheriff’s Department responded to a burglar alarm at Taylor’s Crossroads Community Store.

When deputies arrived, they observed numerous beer cans and cigarette packs trailing from the building. While Sgt. Robert Garrett was processing the scene at the store, Deputies Derek Sidwell and Ashley Tharp responded to an automobile crash at the intersection of Old Stover Road and Heard Ridge Road.

Once at the scene of the wreck, deputies noticed items in and near the overturned vehicle that were similar to those taken from the store.
The vehicle was driven by its owner, Paul Presley, according to reports. A passenger in the car, Harley Buell Upchurch, allegedly fled the scene on foot.

Lot numbers on the beer packages, as well as items identified by the store owner, indicated the two subjects were involved in the burglary, according to Sheriff W.B. Melton.

Charges will be presented to Overton County Grand Jury, according to Sheriff Melton.
