Springfield Police are asking the public for help in identifying the four persons involved in this Robbery.

Crime Stoppers of Springfield/Robertson County Board of Directors recently voted to increase the reward amount up to $5,000.00 for information that will lead to arrests and convictions on a number of unsolved robberies occurring over the past year.

Individual citizens have been the target of robberies (more) on several occasions, as well as businesses such as South Side Drug (see full report) and Papa Johns Pizza (see full report).

Shot Last September, Springfield Man Shot Again Early Sunday 

A Springfield man was shot several times early Sunday morning according to Springfield police. This is the second time this same individual has been shot in less than a year in Springfield.

Grant Aerial 300 adPolice say the shooting occurred around 2:52am Sunday morning. After the shooting, the victim, Josh McKissick, 33, of Springfield, was driven to NorthCrest Medical Center by a citizen.

According to police, the wounds are life threatening and at least one round penetrated McKissick’s torso. The citizen who drove McKissick to the hospital indicated that he just found him lying on the ground on 15Th Street at Leota Street some time after the shooting and drove Mckissick to NorthCrest.

According to police,  Mckissick is refusing to talk to officers. “He had been shot four times and the wounds were life threatening,” police said.

Officers were sent to 15th and Leota where they found McKissick’s Saturn in the street with the driver’s door ajar but there were no bullet holes in the Saturn.

This is the second time Josh McKissick has been shot in Springfield in the last year. In what sounds like a mirror image of today’s incident, last September McKissick arrived at NorthCrest Medical Center with as many as ten bullets in him, and like today, he was driven to the hospital by private vehicle, according to Springfield Police Chief David Thompson.

According to Thompson, McKissick was conscious and talking when he arrived at NorthCrest last September but, again, decided not to talk to police about what happened. At the time, Police didn’t know the location of the shooting or even what time McKissick was shot for sure.

At the present time, Police are seeking information from the public to determine what happened at the scene this morning that resulted in this shooting at 15th and Leota, including any suspect information.

Anyone having additional information on the crime is encouraged to call Crimestoppers at 615 382-3799 where they may receive a cash reward up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of suspects in this crime.

Greenbrier Teacher Gets A Very Special Letter

Click here to view the embedded video.

Cassidy Wiedman, a sixteen year old Junior at Greenbrier High School, wrote a very special letter about her favorite teacher, Ginnie Maxwell.

It was all part of the Barnes & Noble 2015 ‘My Favorite Teacher’ Contest. After considering more than 200 letters, one stood out among the rest. It was Cassidy’s. The question was how to tell her, and that’s where the fun began.

On Tuesday at 5 o’clock with a crew of about 30 teachers, students and County officials,  both Cassidy and “her favorite teacher” Ginnie Maxwell were told they were going to be part of a school sponsored scavenger hunt at Barnes & Noble in Hendersonville, the reality was they were on their way to their own awards ceremony.

Smokey was there at Barnes & Noble with cameras rolling as Ginnie and Cassidy discovered they were the guests of honor at their own party.

Fire On Park St Takes One Life In Springfield Tuesday Night

Fire crews were called to a home in the 1800 block of Park St in Springfield shortly after 11pm Tuesday night.  Neighbors reported hearing a loud pop noise from an adjacent home. fireparkst0005One neighbor said he heard an explosion and came out to see the home engulfed in flames..

According to Springfield Fire chief  Jimmy Hamill, one person has perished in the fire.

There were two people living in the home, a mother and her adult son. The son was at work at the time of the fire.

Neighbors told us that the woman used a wheelchair and had lived at the home for about five years. “She was very kind, neighbors told Smokey, always saw the good in everyone and never had a bad word to say about anybody.”

Chief Hamill told Smokey Barn News that the fire is under investigation and the Fire Marshal has been called to the scene but at the moment investigators believe the fire was accidental.

Officials have released the name of the victim, she is identified as 75 year old Jennetta Brewer. When Firefighters entered the home they found Jennetta in the kitchen near the rear exit. Officials believe Jennetta  succumbed to smoke inhalation.

Chief Hamill told Smokey Barn News Wednesday morning that they are still investigating the cause of the fire. “The investigation is leading us to three possible ignition sources, electrical, tobacco or the fuse box,” Hamill said.

According to Hamill the fire started in the living room and by the time firefighters arrived the 800 square foot home was already 25% engulfed in flames.

Chief Hamill asked us to please remind everyone to (not only) be sure they have smoke detectors but make sure you test them once a month, “Press that little button, Hamill said” and then be sure to change the battery once a year.

UPDATE: Saturday April 25

After an investigation, officials have concluded that an overloaded extension cord is the cause of the fire, according to Springfield Fire chief  Jimmy Hamill, .

Smokey’s thoughts and prayers are with the Brewer family as they face this terrible loss.

 Gun Range Gets A “No” Vote In Coopertown

Monday night the city of Coopertown held a special Board of Zoning Appeals meeting to cast the final vote on whether or not to permit an outdoor gun range to be operated at a residence located at 3285 Ott Wilson Road.

coopertown0004

Mike Barnett

The entrepreneur behind the proposed new facility is Mike Barnett, a man with many years of experience with firearms, firearm safety and training. His plan is to open a training facility to teach gun safety.

As you can see by the number of the adjacent property owners that attended tonight’s meeting, Barnett’s excitement about the new facility has not spread to his neighbors. People living around the proposed facility came to express their concerns about safety, lowered property values, noise and traffic they believe the new facility would bring.

The vote by the Board was by no means fast, the meeting started at 5:00PM and lasted for two hours. The air conditioning for the small room was a little over taxed for the number of residents that showed up for the meeting. In addition, the board was very thorough, looking at every factor carefully. The thoroughness of the board and the number of residents that came to be heard made for a long two hours.

Springfield arms permit classesThe residents were a little frustrated that their opinions on the proposed gun range would have little affect on what the Board did. The decision was not going to be based on a community vote, it was to be decided on one simple fact, did the new proposed business meet fifteen requirements set by the city.

At the very end of the two hour deliberation (and after a good number of residents spoke out against the new facility) the Board voted, the decision, no.

The (unanimous) no vote by the Board was based on what they perceived as a failure by Mr Barnett to meet all of the fifteen requirements set for an outdoor gun range to operate at the proposed location. The Board says Mr Barnett failed to meet four of the fifteen requirements.

The four requirments the Board says Barnett did not meet are:

(ii) A berm shall be present at least twenty (20) feet high in height at the rear of the berm, at least eight (8) feet in height at the sides of the berm, four (4) feet wide at the top of the berm. Any berm must be designed and certified by an engineer licensed by the State of Tennessee, as adequate. (no engineering drawing for the berm)

(iii) The rear of the firing range must be set back at least one ­thousand feet (1,000) from any occupied structures or roads.

(xii) A site plan shall be required pursuant to the requirements listed in Article VIII, Section 8.030(D). In addition to the site plan, the owner/developer shall submit a sound abatement plan and a safety plan. The BZA may require additional fencing, buffering, baffles, or may deny the request if the site plan does not or cannot meet the above­mentioned purposes, standards, and requirements, or if other significant health and safety issues are present.

(xiii) In addition to the required application to the BZA, said applicant shall provide notice to existing landowners within five hundred (500) feet of the property in question. Click here to see the full list of requirements.

coopertown0002

Mike Barnett (R) talks with Coopertown Mayor Sam Childs.

Barnett, said he’s prepared to take it to the next level. The next level is a higher court in Springfield. If Mr Barnett does take his appeal to Springfield he’ll need to prove that he did in fact satisfy all of the fifteen requirements.

Appealing will require Mr Barnett to spend money on attorneys, a process that could become expensive if it were to drag on for too long.

Did the response from the community (which included a petition against the gun range presented to the Board tonight) have any affect on the vote? One official we spoke to said “no” but Smokey walked away wondering how anyone with the power to vote tonight could have completely ignored the elephant in the room.

Smokey will follow Mr Barnett as he makes his way through the courts in Springfield. As soon as a decision is made, we will bring it to you.

What do you think? Did the Board make the right decision tonight?

Anthony Cuevas Captured In New York

Sumner County officials have confirmed with Smokey Barn News that Anthony Cuevas was taken into custody on Sunday.

Anthony QuevasSmokey spoke to Major Don Linzy with the Sumner County Sheriff’s office who confirmed that Cuevas was picked up in Manhattan.

According to Linzy, the capture was the result of a police investigation with the help of authorities in New York.

Sumner County will be extraditing Cuevas to face charges and after that Cuevas will face charges in Robertson County.

The search for Anthony Cuevas in Robertson County went on for three days before police received good word that he had left town..

The search for Cuevas in Robertson County began last Monday night after a White House police officer spotted him on I65.

After pursuing Cuevas to an area near Highland Rim Speedway Monday night, Cuevas abandoned his vehicle and the hunt turned into a foot pursuit. Aside from an alleged jaunt on an ATV, Cuevas was on foot throughout the pursuit in Robertson County, according to police.

Chief1The three day search for Cuevas moved around the country, starting near Highland Rim Speedway then west to an area adjacent to Old US 431 N near Hinkle Chair Company.

Police searched businesses, vacant buildings and even barns in an effort to find Cuevas. On Tuesday police spotted Cuevas on an ATV but once again he was able to slip away, the ATV was later recovered.

Most of the search for Cuevas was on foot, however last Tuesday the Tennessee Highway Patrol brought in a helicopter to assist in an aerial search and Metro Nashville Police came in with one of  their K-9 units. Springfield Police also brought in a K-9 to assist, so it has been three very long and busy days for law enforcement.

Cuevas is wanted in connection with at least one alleged home burglary in the South Tunnel area on Wallace Lane in addition to two alleged vehicle thefts. He will also be facing charges in Robertson County. According to Robertson County PIO Ryan Martin, Cuevas will be facing two counts of Reckless Endangerment, two counts of Resisting Arrest, one count of Theft, Burglary and driving on a revoked licence.

All suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

Driver Walks Away Uninjured After Rollover On Memorial

(See slideshow below)

A Cedar Hill man escaped injury after rolling his pickup truck on Memorial Blvd. The accident occurred just after 8:00pm Thursday evening.

IMG_8593The accident is still under investigation but according to police at the scene, the driver left the roadway, impacted several mailboxes and a utility pole. On impact, the utility pole snapped in half.

After impact the truck began to roll before coming to rest upside-down on the lawn of Edward Jones Investments located at 2412 Memorial Blvd in Springfield.

The truck was loaded with airbags that all deployed which probably accounts for the man’s ability to walk away without injury after the accident.

The tow truck operator did a nice job righting the truck while navigating the downed power lines. No other vehicles were involved in the accident and the driver was the only occupant of the vehicle.

Utility workers were able to replace the utility pole with no major interruption of serviced and congestion on Memorial Blvd was minimal due to low traffic at the time of the wreck.

The driver was taken into custody under suspicion of DUI.

UPDATE: Where Is Anthony Cuevas?

The Robertson County Sheriff’s Office has released a statement in regards to the search for  wanted suspect Anthony Cuevas.

Anthony QuevasCuevas entered Robertson County rather spectacularly on Monday when he was spotted by a White House police officer on I65 and a chase ensued.  Police chased
Cuevas into Greenbrier where he abandoned his vehicle near Highland Rim Speedway and escaped on foot.

Since then Cuevas has been spotted several times but has managed to evade capture. On Wednesday police said they were changing their tactics as they looked for new leads on the whereabouts of Cuevas.

On Thursday  afternoon the Robertson County Sheriff’s Office released the following statement in regards to their search efforts for Cuevas.

SEARCH FOR SUSPECTED SUMNER COUNTY BURGLAR COMES UP EMPTY

Late Monday afternoon, Sumner County issued a BOLO for a gray Chevrolet bearing Kentucky tags wanted for burglaries in Sumner County. An officer with the White House Police Department observed the vehicle at mile marker 108 on I-65 South and gave pursuit. The pursuit continued onto Bethel Road and the suspect bailed and ran at the intersection of Bethel and Lake Road. Officers had already called for assistance
from Millersville, Greenbrier, Ridgetop, and the Robertson County Sheriff’s Office. A search was initiated by all agencies in this area without success.

On Tuesday morning, Cuevas was spotted operating a stolen four-wheel ATV on Betts Road in Greenbrier which he abandoned and fled on foot. A short time later, tl ford lease 300Cuevas approached a family on Abednego Road asking for a ride to Nashville. When he was recognized by the citizens, he fled on foot. The sheriff’s office, Coopertown Police Department, Greenbrier Police Department with Metro K-9 and THP helicopter began the search to no avail.

We have no reason to believe the subject is still in the Robertson County area. He has no local ties and his last known address was in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Cuevas has an extensive arrest record for thefts and burglaries which are all non-violent crimes. Based on the information of him attempting to obtain a ride to Nashville, it is believe that the subject made it out of our county. He has communicated to family that he intends to make it to California.

We want to thank the citizens for the tips, and we encourage everyone to be cognizant of their surroundings. We also encourage them to keep their vehicles and outdoor equipment locked and remove the keys. As always, if anyone sees something suspicious, we would appreciate a call and continue to be a good neighbor.

Call your local law enforcement anytime you see something that doesn’t seem right, because it probably isn’t. We depend on your help.
