CROSSVILLE — A Cumberland County man wanted by several jurisdictions on charges ranging from home invasion to fleeing from police multiple times is back behind bars after his arrest after a brief struggle Thursday night.

Jason Russell Randolph, 27, whose latest address is listed on High Rock Loop, was taken into custody after he arrived at a room in the Motel 6 in Crossville. Chief Deputy Casey Cox said information gleened during their investigation into Randolph's activities led them to the motel.

Several Cumberland County Sheriff's Department deputies and Crossville Police officers staked out the motel and waited for him to arrive. He was quickly taken into custody.

After being taken into custody, officers allegedly found Randolph in possession of methamphetamine, Xanax and drug paraphernalia.

He is being held without bond on two probation violation warrants from Cumberland County, resisting arrest, possession of meth, possession of Xanax and possession of drug paraphernalia, Cox said.

Charges from surrounding counties that are expected include aggravated burglaries, home invasion and auto thefts.

"The success of the operation was a result of the combined efforts of the Cumberland County Sheriff's Department, Crossville Police Department and Tennessee Highway Patrol's Criminal Investigation Division," Cox said. "The Motel 6 staff should also be commended for their assistance during the operation."

Additional information will be published as it becomes available.
