TBI makes arrest in theft


CROSSVILLE — The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation's criminal investigation into money that went missing from a Cumberland County bank has resulted in an indictment and arrest.

Jennifer Brown, 31, of Crossville, was indicted by the Cumberland County Grand Jury last week on one count of theft over $10,000.

The 13th District Attorney General requested a TBI investigation after an internal audit at First National Bank of Tennessee, at 1386 N. Main St., in Crossville, conducted in August revealed missing money. It was determined that Brown, who was a teller at the bank, was short about $26,000 in her teller drawer. Brown was fired from her position at the bank.

Brown was arrested Wednesday by the Cumberland County Sheriff's Department and booked into the jail on $15,000 bond.
