Cannon County Sheriff's Department
Sgt. Tommy Miller was dispatched to take a report on a stolen vehicle. He was met by Mike Pennington who reported that a suspect named Chase Vance had been remodeling a house for him. When he woke up the morning of Oct. 21 he noticed that his Ford 150 truck and a Kawasaki motorcycle were missing long with Mr. Vance.
Pennington discovered that the tires on his remaining vehicles, a Nissan Xterra, Jeep Cherokee and a Ford Explorer had all been slashed as well.
Vance was described as 5-foot-8, 150 pounds with a bald head and multiple tattoos.
Arrested on warrant
Officers were dispatched to Pascal Road to serve a warrant on Andrew Graves. Upon arriving Sgt. Tommy Miller and Deputy Reed were met by Graves' mother who told them that she hadn't seen him and didn't think he was home.
Sgt. Miller then asked for permission to walk through the house to see if Graves was inside. The officers discovered Graves' girlfriend, Sasha, in the middle bedroom. Sasha denied seeing him and speculated that he might be in Chattanooga.
The officers walked into the back bedroom where they noticed a wallet on the bed. Miller opened it and discovered Graves' driver's license. After asking his whereabouts again, Miller opened the closet door and discovered Andrew Graves hiding in the closet. He was then transported to the Cannon County Jail without incident.

The car was described as a yellow 1972 Chevy Impala with a green vinyl top, 26-inch green and yellow wheels. The car, with a green and yellow interior, was valued at $23,000.
