KNOXVILLE, Tenn (WVLT) What started with two burglary arrests in Bradley County has turned into the recovery of more than $100,000 worth of stolen property from seven counties.
A husband and wife from Knox County were arrested in Bradley County in mid-November.
Randall David Lane, 29, of Knoxville, and his wife Kristyn Nicole Lane, 18, of Powell are charged with Aggravated Burglary and Theft charges.
A third person, John Edward Lane, 40, of Cleveland, was arrested a few days later in Bradley County on Theft charges after being found with additional stolen property.
Investigators have recovered items taken in Anderson, Knox, Roane, Loudon, Bradley, McMinn, and Polk Counties.
Deputies say the items included firearms, televisions, other electronics, and jewelry. Since that time, additional property has been found at other locations in Anderson County.
The Anderson County Criminal Investigations Unit is continuing to investigate this case in an effort to recover more stolen property.
"Once again, this is another example of law enforcement agencies working together to combat crime and solve cases" said Sheriff Paul White. "Our thanks to Sheriff Tim Gobble of Bradley County and his investigators for their quick work in this case."
