Nashville men charged with burglaries, thefts

CROSSVILLE — Cumberland County sheriff's investigators looking into a report of thefts and drug possession in the Muddy Branch Rd. area arrested two Nashville men and charged them with a host of charges, including burglary and theft.

Brandon Eugene Norris, 29, 916 Oneida St., Nashville, is charged with two counts of burglary, two counts of theft of property, possession of methamphetamine, possession of marijuana, vandalism and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to Sgt. Jason Elmore's report.

Stanley Thomas Tobitt, 25, 212 Haynes Park, Nashville, is charged with burglary, two counts of theft of property, simple possession, vandalism and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Both suspects were arrested at a Muddy Branch Rd. residence on Jan. 14.

Investigator Jeff Slayton, Sgt. Butch Lefevbre and Deputies Dustin Jackson and Danny Stone traveled to the Muddy Branch Rd. area the day before to investigate reports of burglary and drug use.

They interviewed several persons and were told that the two, along with others, had returned to a residence with a stolen band saw/jig saw unit, lawn mower and four-wheeler. Those items were recovered by deputies. Also found at the residence was methamphetamine and marijuana.

On Tuesday, deputies received a report that the two men were back in the area. They responded to the same residence and found the two men, along with car parts and accessories, and a hand tool.

The deputies the then traveled to a residence on Witt Rd. and discovered a storage shed had been broken into and that a lawn mower was missing. A camper used for storage had also been broken into, but nothing was reported missing.

Further investigation led deputies to a second residence where vehicles had been broken into and parts and other items taken.

The two were placed into custody and formally charged, with bond set at $60,000 for Norris, and $45,000 for Tobitt.

Both men are to appear in Cumberland County General Sessions Court on Feb. 3.
