An investigation by special agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, the Sweetwater Police Department, and the coordinated intelligence efforts of multiple other agencies has resulted in the arrest of a fugitive who has eluded capture for the last decade.

In September 2007, at the request of former 10th District Attorney General Steve Bebb, TBI special agents began investigating the theft of money from the evidence room at the Sweetwater Police Department. During the course of the investigation, agents developed information that Christopher A. Greene, who was employed as an officer at the time, was responsible for the theft.               

In April 2008, a Monroe County Grand Jury returned an indictment charging Greene with one count of Theft over $10,000. While attempting to locate Greene, agents developed information that he had left the country and was possibly living in Central America.

Last week, authorities in Panama located Christopher Greene, 55, and alerted the U.S. Marshals Service. On Friday, Greene was returned to the United States and transported back to Tennessee by deputies with the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office. He was subsequently booked into the Monroe County Jail on a $100,000 bond.

Why I'm Voting Republican And So Should You

For much of my life, the commitment to the Democratic Party has puzzled me. I was raised to analyze both sides of issues and to make an intelligent decision based upon that information. The values of self-reliance, hard work, and individual liberty that I grew up with were the same American values that have made this country exceptional. As I have grown older, I have witnessed ...

Roy Exum: UT’s Genius Stroke

If all goes as (very carefully) planned, the most dynamic president to be hired at the University of Tennessee since the legendary Andy Holt retired in 1970, will be ushered into office today by the university’s board of trustees. The selection of Randy Boyd to take over his ala mater is a genius stroke and certainly seems to solidify two of life’s greatest truths. The first ... (click for more)
