"Freedom Fighter Bandit" Arrested And Charged With Bank Robbery
Donald Q. Cochran United States Attorney MIDDLE DISTRICT OF TENNESSEE/Peg Broadcasting News Tuesday February 6, 2018

Authorities have released the name of the woman suspected of robbing a Crossville bank over the weekend. Nilsa Marie Urena, 25, of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, was charged with bank robbery after being arrested near the Greyhound Bus Terminal in Nashville on Saturday. Authorities say that on Saturday, February 3, 2018, around 11 a.m. a woman entered the Upper Cumberland Federal Credit Union in Crossville and handed a teller a note which read, "Bomb [;] 20 minutes [;] no cops [;] Allah." The robber was given $1,000 in $100 bills, after which she left the bank and walked toward a nearby apartment complex, where another bank employee observed her to be changing clothes. During the immediate investigation by responding officers from the Crossville Police Department and the Cumberland County Sheriff's Department, officers determined that a suspect matching the description of the robber was traveling in a vehicle registered to a car service. Authorities surreptitiously alerted the car owner that he was possibly transporting a bank robbery suspect and the driver continued to send text message updates to law enforcement as they traveled to the Greyhound Bus Terminal in Nashville. Ms. Urena was taken into custody at a nearby market by Metro Police. Authorities say that Urena was being sought by the FBI for her involvement in multiple bank robberies in Georgia and had been dubbed by the media as the "Freedom Fighter Bandit." There was also an active warrant for Urena charging her with one of those robberies in Douglas County, Georgia. If convicted, Urena faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
U.S. Attorney Douglas Cochran commended the outstanding response and investigation by the Crossville Police Department and the Cumberland County Sheriff's Department; the FBI and the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department; and also commended the actions of the witnesses and the driver of the vehicle who provided invaluable assistance to law enforcement. Assistant U.S. Attorney Thomas J. Jaworski is prosecuting the case.

Peg Broadcasting News Tuesday February 6, 2018

A Knoxville man's attempt to steal cigarettes went up in smoke when he was foiled by a delivery truck driver. According to the Cumberland County Sherriff's Department, the driver spied 42 year old Michael Shane Caffey in the back of his truck, allegedly stealing cigarettes. The quick thinking driver slammed the door shut and locked Caffey inside. According to reports, Caffey began screaming that he had a gun. When the authorities arrived, they cautiously opened the trailer. Caffey did not appear to be armed, but he did break free from the officers. Following a short foot pursuit, Caffey was seized and arrested for burglary and evading arrest. On his person was a new package of cigarettes shoved in his underwear.
