DNA spray security system makes U.S. debut in Knoxville


DNA spray security system makes U.S. debut in Knoxville
WVLT Tuesday May 12, 2015

Crooks in Knoxville may get a bit of a surprise the next time they try to rob a Subway in West Knoxville. Local 8 Now reports that the store is the first in the nation to get new technology that sprays the bad guys with DNA as they run out the door. The technology has been successful in at least 30 countries for the past decade. Monday it was installed in the Knoxville Subway on Sutherland Avenue and will be the first time it's been seen and tried in the U.S. "If a robber comes in and robs the place, the system gets activated and on his way out he will get marked with artificial DNA," Johan Larsen told Local 8 News. He's the senior vice president of CSI Protect. The spray can only be seen with UV light and can stay on the suspect for up to 7 weeks. Knoxville police say often times a robber will hit more than one store. Each store's DNA spray will have a specific code that police can test and send off to a database. The technology costs about $5,000 to install. That cost includes intense signage, letting people know the store is protected. CSI Protect and Subway are already planning on putting this system in other stores in Knoxville. CSI Protect is testing out some residential versions of the spray as well. They chose East Tennessee because that is where CSI Protect is headquartered. (Photo Courtesy WVLT)

Tennessee fire marshal issues reminder of sky lantern ban


Tennessee fire marshal issues reminder of sky lantern ban
WVLT/AP Tuesday May 12, 2015

With the summer's festival season approaching, the State Fire Marshal's Office is reminding revelers that it is illegal to fly flame-fueled sky lanterns in Tennessee without a professional fireworks license. Also known as Chinese or wish lanterns, they can cause fires on the ground or on rooftops when they land and can also be a hazard to livestock that might consume them. Under a 2011 state law, sky lanterns can be confiscated and destroyed if found in the possession of anyone without a proper license for flame effects, pyrotechnics or outdoor displays. According to the fire marshal's office, sky lanterns pose an additional danger this year because of dry conditions in many areas of the state. (Photo Courtesy WVLT)
