Town Hall burglarized


Burglars targeted Farragut Town Hall for the second time in four months late Monday night into early Tuesday morning.

“Definitely, somebody broke into Town Hall last night and got into the building. I think we’re still trying to figure out what they took,” Town Administrator David Smoak said Tuesday, May 4.

“I know the cops are still here looking at everything,” he added.

Knox County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Martha Dooley confirmed that unknown suspects burglarized Town Hall, but she had no other comments.

“The investigation is underway,” she said.

Town Hall also was burglarized during the night of Feb. 9, Knox County Sheriff’s Office records state, and unknown suspects made off with $122 and one master key to the building.


In that burglary, KCSO discovered the suspect(s) dislodged a windowpane in an office on the ground floor to enter the building.

The burglars stole a set of master keys from the main office that were used to enter other offices in the building. All but one of those keys was recovered, lying on the mulch outside the window the suspects apparently used as an entrance point.

After that burglary, Smoak said the suspects tripped an alarm, which summoned police.

“There is an alarm, and it was tripped and there were officers that came to the scene,” he said.

“We’ve taken security measures to make sure the building is secure, so there’s no problem with that. We’re looking internally at everything we need to change here to make sure the building is secure.

“We’ve already taken care of a good portion of that,” he added.
