UPDATE: Warrant against Kenneth Bartley has been recalled
Monday June 15, 2015

A warrant for Kenneth Bartley’s arrest has been recalled after authorities questioned him and found that he could not have been the suspect who committed armed robbery in Anderson County on Sunday. Bartley’s attorney even showed reporters a ticket where his client had ridden the Washington, D.C. public transit and a selfie that Bartley took while in D.C. After that, Bartley reportedly traveled to Virginia and spent time with his former counselor.

According to the Anderson County Sheriff's Office, Kenneth Bartley has been located in Vienna, Virginia. Anderson County Sheriff's Office says their investigators will be traveling there to interview Bartley and work with Virginia authorities to determine if Bartley was in Virginia at the time of a robbery Sunday morning.

Police are now looking for Kenneth Bartley after an armed robbery at the Marathon Station near Rocky Top. Deputies say Bartley entered the store, brandished a black handgun, and robbed the market of cash. He was described as a white male with brown to black facial hair wearing glasses, black toboggan, black jacket, and blue jeans. No vehicle was seen leaving the store. Bartley, 23, already had a warrant for aggravated robbery. Bartley served time for homicide after he shot the principal and two assistant principals at Campbell County High School in 2005.
