police reports

• Jan. 7: Knox County Sheriff’s Office deputies were advised by a Kohl’s department store loss prevention officer of the apprehension of an alleged shoplifter. The complainant stated the suspect, a Tanglewood Lane resident, attempted to take a pair of shoes without paying for them by cutting the hard tag from the shoes and placing them in an empty shoebox from a previous purchase. The shoes were valued at less than $100.

• Jan. 9: A truck driver was the victim of an alleged strongarm robbery in the parking lot of TZ Travel Center off Watt Road. The victim told Knox County police he was approached by four suspects. The first suspect advised the victim that he had recently won $160,000 in a lottery and would match whatever amount of money the victim could pull out of his pocket. The victim stated he took $500 out of his pocket with the impression that the suspect would give him the amount of money that was matched. The first suspect grabbed the money from his hand and ran away. Two of the other suspects held the victim while the suspect with the money escaped. The others dispersed in different directions that prevented the victim from chasing them. The victim stated he believed all four were picked up by a driver of an unknown vehicle.

• Jan. 11: A complainant representing The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints off Grigsby Chapel Road advised KCSO that a damaged door had been discovered at the church.

Missing were two cash registers valued at about $2,000.
