An item of interest for our readers

This will likely not make some local parents in Smyrna happy.

Rutherford County Schools officials said Jessica Holland, a former Eagleville School elementary teacher who was charged with stealing the prescription drug Adderall from one of her students, has returned to the classroom at a different Rutherford County school: Stewartsboro Elementary in Smyrna.


Assisting the SPD

The Smyrna Police Department would like you to help find these individuals




The two females have been committing fraud at several Wal-Mart stores by using counterfeit coupons for various items. They have been driving a light colored GMC Acadia with a dual sunroof. The vehicle shown is not the actual vehicle but one that is similar. Anybody with information on the identity or location of these subjects should contact Detective Marcy Gossett at Smyrna Police Department, 615-267-5002.

Well this sucks

Looks like a company is moving from Smyrna and will now be using a third party vendor in Chattanooga.

Sixty-four people will lose their jobs this spring, as Carrier Corporation announced plans to idle its Smyrna distribution and warehouse facility. The heating, ventilation and air-conditioning company will shift the operations that had been handled in Rutherford County to a third-party vendor in Chattanooga, a corporate spokeswoman told The Tennessean

 There is a political issue with this company, so please let us stay friendly on this site.

Here is some information from the SPD.

ARMED ROBBERY SUSPECTS - NEED TO IDENTIFY/LOCATE
On Jan, 3, 2017 at approximately 12:30 am, two males entered the Hilton Garden Inn and used a foldings style, box-cutter knife to rob the clerk. The clerk was bound with duct tape before the suspects left in a dark colored sedan.
The suspect armed with the knife is believed to be in his 40’s, approximately 5’6” tall, with brown/grey hair.
The other suspect is described as being approximately 6’3” tall with a brown goatee and wearing a black ball cap. He was described as being in his 20’s or 30’s. This subject initially was unmasked but pulled some sort of white cloth over his face during the robbery.

HELP US LOCATE/IDENTIFY THIS ARMED ROBBERY SUSPECT
On 1/1/17 at approximately 0415, the Mapco at 1883 Almaville Rd, was robbed at gunpoint by a thin black male described to be in his late 30’s or early 40’s. The suspect was wearing blue jeans, a black shirt and a fur lined hat with ear flaps. The suspect waited until the cash register was open and produced a small black handgun and attempted to grab cash from the drawer. A second suspect waited in the parking lot and was driving what was described as a green compact truck, possibly a mid 90’s Chevy S-10. The vehicle was last seen entering east bound I-24.
At approximately 0440, individuals believed to be the same suspects robbed the A+ Exxon at 1209 Fortress Dr. in Murfreesboro. A suspect matching the description of the one in Smyrna again produced a gun and attempted to grab cash from the register. He did exit the store with stolen beer. In this crime, the suspect was accompanied by another black male described as being “heavy set”. Both men left in what is described as a green Chevy S-10.
If anyone has information on this crime or can identify the suspects, please contact Smyrna PD at 615.459.6644.
