Local resident falls victim to online scam
Peg Broadcasting News Friday March 20, 2015

An Old Mail Road resident reported to City Police that he had filled out several online job applications in November of last year, and recently received a check for $2,000 from MMARTGRADE.com. Thinking the check was part of a recent application, he went to the website as directed by instructions with the check. There he was asked to enter his Social Security number, drivers license and other sensitive information. At that time he was told that he would be a "secret shopper" for WalMart, but when he later logged into the site, he found that it no longer existed. Upon contacting WalMart, the victim was told they did not have any affiliation with the site. Police say that at this time there has been no fraudulent activity with the information given.

 


Tennessee using new driver license system to improve efficiency
WVLT Friday March 20, 2015

For the first time in 30 years, a new statewide driver license system from the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security is up and running. The new system, referred to as A-List, had a soft launch on February 17. Local 8 Now reports the agency says the system has reduced or eliminated paperwork for driver license examiners, while increased automation of what were previously manual processes. Examiners now utilize a single, web-based interactive screen, as opposed to moving between multiple displays in the previous system. The A-List driver license system even increases online driver services: pay reinstatement fees, schedule road skills tests, add emergency contact information, receive electronic communications, and start the driver license application online. The program is also more secure and reduces the potential for customer and employee fraud.

 


Tennessee Attorney Sues Haslam Administration For Records
AP Friday March 20, 2015

A corporate tax attorney is suing Republican Gov. Bill Haslam's administration for refusing to produce documents under the Tennessee Open Records Act. Brett Carter of the firm Bradley Arant Boult Cummings filed the lawsuit alleging a "willful violation" of open records laws in chancery court in Nashville. Carter is seeking information used by the state Department of Finance and Administration in drafting the "Revenue Modernization Act" that Haslam has proposed to lawmakers this year. Both House and Senate committees are scheduled to hold hearings on the bill next week. Legislative analysts project the proposal would raise $53 million for the state over the next two years, plus $7 million a year for local governments.

TBI Top Ten Most Wanted From Rutherford County Among Two Fugitives Nabbed in Florida
TBI/Susan Niland Thursday March 19, 2015

A fugitive on the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations Top Ten Most Wanted list, Edward Tarras, was captured Wednesday night in Florida, along with another man wanted by New Jersey officials. Edward William Tarras, Jr., was placed on the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations Top Ten Most Wanted list on August 19, 2014. He was wanted by the Smyrna Police Department and the TBI after failing to appear in court, where he faced almost two dozen sex-related charges. On August 15, 2014, Tarras cut off his tracking bracelet and fled the state. Through a joint investigation information was developed indicating that Tarras was with his friend, Kristopher Dohm, in the New Port Richey area of Florida. Dohm had been charged by New Jersey officials with one count of Interference with Custody. Authorities believed Dohm abducted his 7- and 8-year-old sons. At approximately 10:20 p.m. CST Wednesday, authorities arrested Tarras and Dohm at the Royal Palm Inn in New Port Richey, Florida. Dohms two sons, were also located and placed with Child Protection investigators. Tarras, 39, and Dohm, 36, were both booked into the Pasco County Central Detention Center and both are being held without bond. The Rutherford County Sheriffs Office has a hold on Tarras (Right), and Dohm (Left) has a hold placed on him by the Hopatcong Police Department in New Jersey.
