Elmore faces parole violation, new charges

CROSSVILLE — A Crossville man on parole following his 2010 guilty plea in connection with the burglary of a convenience store is back behind bars facing a parole violation charge and two new charges, according to sheriff's department reports.

David Jonathon Elmore, 21, 46 Oak Crest Lane, was taken into custody by Cumberland County Sheriff's Department K-9 Officer Danny Stone and Deputy Tommy Pettus on March 19, according to reports released this week.

The deputies traveled to Pace Ave. off Hwy. 70 E in search of Elmore, armed with the parole violation warrant that had been issued Dec. 14. The warrant had been issued because of unlisted violations of conditions of his release.

Elmore had pleaded guilty to burglary of the Sunoco station off Hwy. 70 E that occurred in August 2010. He received a three-year prison sentence that was suspended for supervised probation. He was also to pay $2,300 restitution to Sunoco and $680 restitution to JP Jewelry in an unrelated case.

Crossville Police had charged Elmore with the burglary after they responded to an alarm and found Elmore hiding in a cooler behind cases of beer. With him was found a garbage bag containing 31 lighters, six cartons of cigarettes and 208 lottery tickets. He gave police a statement when arrested.

On March 19, the deputies traveled to Pace Ave. to search for Elmore and found him in the back seat of a vehicle. They took him into custody, and discovered him in possession of illegal drugs, resulting in the new charges.

The new charges are simple possession of methamphetamine, simple possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. He is to appear in General Sessions Court on April 8 to answer the new charges.
