NEWS RELEASE
SUBJECT: Search Warrant by K.P.D. Vice Detectives Nets Two Arrests
DATE: October 24, 2014
GENERAL NARRATIVE
On October 23, 2014 at approximately 9:45 PM, Detectives from the Kingsport Police Department’s Vice Unit, with tactical support from the Hawkins County Sheriff’s Office S.W.A.T. Team, executed a search warrant at a residence located at 3413 Stafford Street in Kingsport. The execution of this warrant came as a result of a lengthy investigation into crack cocaine trafficking in the City of Kingsport.

As the officers entered the dwelling, the occupants were in the process of attempting to destroy contraband by flushing it down a toilet. Approximately four ounces of crack cocaine, with an approximate street value of $12,000 was located in the toilet in question. Additionally, approximately six grams of marijuana was located on a spice rack in the kitchen. Several rocks of crack cocaine were found in the kitchen sink, and multiple kitchen containers and utensils contained residue that tested positive for cocaine, leading detectives to reasonably conclude that the residents were involved in the process of “cooking” crack cocaine. Detectives also seized nearly $1,000 in cash believed to be profits from illegal drug sales.

Two individuals, Quincy James and Jasmine Carr, were home at the time the search warrant was executed. Mr. James was arrested and charged with:

1) Possession of over ½ Gram of a Schedule II Drug (Crack Cocaine) within 1,000 feet of a School Zone

2) Simple Possession of a Schedule VI Drug (Marijuana)

3) Maintaining a Dwelling where Drugs are Sold, Stored, Manufactured or Distributed

4) Tampering with Evidence

5) Possession of Drug Paraphernalia

Ms. Carr was arrested and charged with:

1) Simple Possession of a Schedule II Drug (Crack Cocaine)

2) Simple Possession of a Schedule VI Drug (Marijuana)

Both suspects were initially processed in the Kingsport City Jail and later transferred to the Hawkins County Jail for confinement.

The Kingsport Police Department would like to thank the Hawkins County Sheriff’s Office for their assistance in this operation.

NEWS RELEASE
SUBJECT: K.P.D. Responds to Serious Single Vehicle Rollover Crash
DATE: October 21, 2014
GENERAL NARRATIVE
On October 21, 2014 at approximately 3:10 PM, Kingsport Police Patrol and Traffic Units responded to a single vehicle rollover crash in the 1200 block of Catawba Street in Kingsport. The first arriving officers located a 2006 Mazda Tribute compact sport utility vehicle resting on the passenger side with the driver, Regina L. Bailey, lying on the roadway underneath the vehicle. First responders from the Kingsport Fire Department, Kingsport Life Saving Crew, and Sullivan County E.M.S. arrived on scene, rescued Ms. Bailey from underneath the vehicle, and transported her to Holston Valley Medical Center for treatment of serious injuries.

An investigation into the crash by the K.P.D. Traffic Unit revealed that the vehicle was eastbound on Catawba Street when, for unknown reasons, it veered to the left across the center line. The vehicle overrode the curb on the opposite side of the street and struck a tree in the yard of 1224 Catawba Street, causing the vehicle to roll over onto the passenger side. The events leading up to this crash are still under investigation.

Ms. Bailey was not wearing her seatbelt and was partially ejected as the vehicle rolled onto its side. Had she been properly restrained, her injuries would likely have been lessened or even prevented altogether. The Kingsport Police Department continues to stress the importance of wearing seatbelts. Not only is it the law, but it might just save a life.

KPD e-News Release: Detectives Requesting Assistance in Identifying Suspect in Multiple Incidents of Debit Card Fraud

NEWS RELEASE
SUBJECT: Detectives Requesting Assistance in Identifying Suspect in Multiple Incidents of Debit Card Fraud
DATE: October 17, 2014
GENERAL NARRATIVE
Kingsport Police Detectives are attempting to identify a suspect connected to multiple incidents of debit card fraud that occurred at Wal-Mart, located at 2500 West Stone Drive in Kingsport.

On October 5, 2014 at approximately 5:00 PM, the same black male suspect used nine different debit cards to make multiple transactions totaling nearly $2,750. In almost every transaction, the suspect purchased pre-paid Visa gift cards.

Each of the nine debit cards were linked to a different victim’s account; however, the common denominator is that each of the account holders still had their own debit card in their possession. The suspect was somehow able to obtain counterfeit “clones” of the victims’ debit cards.

A photo of the suspect taken from surveillance video is included in this release. Anyone who recognizes this individual is asked to contact K.P.D. Detectives at 423-229-9429 or call Kingsport Central Dispatch at 423-246-9111.
