Beware Red Cross Nurse Scam
Peg Broadcasting New/CCSD Monday September 22, 2014

In the latest scheme to obtain drugs illegally, authorities helped to thwart a Red Cross Nurse scam recently in Lake Tansi. Officers got a call that a woman dressed in nursing scrubs had come to a home in Tansi and claimed to be from the Red Cross. The phony nurse said she was there to collect any drugs that were no longer used or needed and that she would dispose of them for the resident. Police stopped a vehicle matching the suspects' description and arrested the driver, 26 year-old Zachary Daniel Pittman, of Hatler Road, Crossville, and passenger, 29 year-old Crystal Elizabeth Simmons, of Hatler Road, Crossville. A search of the vehicle revealed drug paraphernalia in Simmon’s possession. The officer also reported finding a bag containing the Schedule 3 and Schedule 4 drugs, identified as Hydrocodone and Alprazolam. Both Pittman and Simmons face an October 13th court date on charges of Criminal Impersonation and Manufacturing, Delivery and Sell of a controlled substance.

WVLT Monday September 22, 2014

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The U.S. Geological Survey says a 2.5-magnitude earthquake happened about three miles northeast of Sweetwater around 8 p.m. Saturday. The USGS says earthquakes that are felt but too small to cause damage happen about once a year. The New Madrid zone stretches 150 miles, crossing parts of Tennessee and six other states: Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri and Mississippi. In 1811 and 1812, it unleashed a trio of powerful jolts that rattled the central Mississippi River valley.
