“We come here yesterday to pick up a Mr. Joshua Reece on a violation of probation,” said Sheriff Mark Gammons of the Macon Co Sheriffs Dept.
MACON COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) – A Macon County truck driver is facing rape charges after investigators say he fondled a young girl for years.
Man, both of those homes are real dumps. We're not a wealthy county but most folks take pride in the appearance of their homes - yards are maintained and houses are kept up. It's not unusual for me to go into town and drive past at least a couple people in their 80s out cutting their lawns on their riding mowers.
The location in the first story appears to be south of town judging by the hills - Lafayette sits right on the crest of the Highland Rim - and the pervert's property on Taurus Farm Road in the second story is a couple miles to the east of my place.
Our sheriff, the guy being interviewed in both videos, is a Constitutional sheriff and a pretty nice guy who I met when I attended a couple of County Board of Supervisors' meetings when we got the 2A Sanctuary measure passed, and he's a hands on kind of guy - anytime there's a call involving more than one of his deputies, he's there, day or night.
Like I said, Mark's a nice guy, the kind of guy that will stop and talk with you in the store if he's ever met you before, but I don't think I ever want to get on his bad side.
