GENERAL NARRATIVE
On May 26, 2015 at approximately 10:30 AM, Kingsport Central Dispatch was notified of an armed robbery that had just occurred at Mountain States Pharmacy, located at 1657 East Stone Drive in Kingsport. Officers from the Kingsport Police Department’s Patrol and Criminal Investigations Division immediately responded to the scene and the surrounding area to investigate and search for the suspect.

Investigators soon learned that the suspect, later identified as David Scott Henegar, entered the pharmacy, brandished a handgun, and demanded prescription medication. Pharmacy personnel complied with his demands and relinquished an undisclosed type and quantity of medication.

Mr. Henegar fled the pharmacy on foot to the nearby Roadrunner Market, located at 2000 North Eastman Road. Mr. Henegar approached the gas pumps and spoke with a female who had just finished refueling her vehicle. He initially requested a ride; however, when she refused, he carjacked her at gunpoint.

Mr. Henegar forced the woman to drive him to a location in the Highland community at which point he released her and her vehicle and fled again on foot into the surrounding neighborhood.

During the resulting manhunt for Mr. Henegar, he was spotted in the adjacent Fairacres neighborhood. After a short foot pursuit, which culminated in a successful Taser deployment, he was apprehended in the 1500 block of Belmeade Drive.

Believing he had ingested some of the stolen medication, officers transported him to Holston Valley Medical Center where he was later admitted. Mr. Henegar has been charged with:

1) Aggravated Robbery

2) Carjacking

3) Especially Aggravated Kidnapping

On February 6, 2015, several members of the congregation of Victory Apostolic Church, located at 1921 Kite Street in Kingsport, approached the Kingsport Police Department with concerns over a substantial sum of money being missing from the church coffers. The complainants stated that the disappearance of the funds coincided with Boyd W. Holder’s tenure as the pastor and primary financial agent of their church.

Detectives with the K.P.D. Criminal Investigations Division began a lengthy investigation into the matter, which included a thorough analysis of both Mr. Holder’s and the church’s financial records and transactions. During the course of this investigation, Detectives learned that Mr. Holder had siphoned in excess of $60,000 of church funds for his own personal use or gain.

On May 20, 2015, the findings of this investigation were presented to the Sullivan County Grand Jury which returned a true bill, indicting Mr. Holder on the charges of Theft over $60,000 and Money Laundering. A bench warrant was promptly issued for his arrest.

On May 21, 2015 at approximately 11:30 PM, Mr. Holder was arrested at the parsonage where he resides, located at 1913 Kite Street. He was incarcerated in the Kingsport City Jail in lieu of a $35,000 bond imposed by the presiding judge.

KPD e-News Release: Kingsport Police Make Seatbelt Enforcement a Priority During National “Click It or Ticket” Mobilization

NEWS RELEASE
SUBJECT: Kingsport Police Make Seatbelt Enforcement a Priority During National "Click It or Ticket" Mobilization
DATE: May 15, 2015
GENERAL NARRATIVE
From May 18 through 31, 2015, the Kingsport Police Department is partnering with the Tennessee Governor’s Highway Safety Office to step up seatbelt enforcement. This campaign encompasses the Memorial Day holiday, which is traditionally one of the busiest travel weekends of the year.

Every day, unbuckled motorists are losing their lives in motor vehicle crashes. As we approach Memorial Day weekend and the summer vacation season, we want to make sure people are doing the one thing that can save them in a crash—buckling up.

Tennessee reached its highest seatbelt usage percentage last year at 87.71%. However, Tennessee is still considered a “low use” state on a national level. According to the Department of Safety and Homeland Security, over half of Tennessee’s traffic fatalities in 2014 were not restrained at the time of the crash.

Each year, the University of Tennessee Center for Transportation Research performs an observational seatbelt survey. The results of this survey indicate that male pickup truck occupants have the lowest rate of seatbelt use statewide. This statistic holds true for both rural and urban areas.

Last month, Governor Haslam signed a bill that will increase Tennessee’s seatbelt fine beginning in January 2016. “The fine is more than doubling,” said Tennessee Highway Patrol Colonel Tracy Trott. “The statistics speak for themselves—when we have more people buckling up, we have more people walking away from crashes. Start making the smart decision now before it costs you.”

“Our law enforcement partners receive funding each year specifically to take part in this campaign,” said Governor’s Highway Safety Office Director Kendell Poole. “They will be looking for seatbelt violators, and they will ticket you. If you think not wearing your seatbelt doesn’t impact anyone but you, you are wrong. Every citizen is impacted by medical and emergency expenses, lost productivity, increased insurance premiums, and property loss. This doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of the pain and suffering of your friends, family, and the law enforcement and emergency personnel working the crash.”

Wearing a seatbelt can easily make the difference in a motorist being seriously injured or killed in a crash versus literally walking away from the crash with minor injuries or completely unscathed. The Kingsport Police Department encourages ALL occupants of ALL motor vehicles to wear their seatbelt ALL of the time. It is the law, but more importantly, it might just save a life.

KPD e-News Release: Four Suspects Indicted in 2013 Drug-Related Robbery Conspiracy

NEWS RELEASE
SUBJECT: Four Suspects Indicted in 2013 Drug-Related Robbery Conspiracy
DATE: May 14, 2015
CASE #: 13-007773
GENERAL NARRATIVE
Exactly two years to the day after a 2013 shooting incident at a Kingsport apartment complex, the final suspect is in custody in a drug-related robbery conspiracy. On May 14, 2013 at approximately 10:30 PM, Kingsport Police Patrol Officers responded to a report of shots fired at Allen Creek Apartments #107, located at 415 Allen Drive in Kingsport. Responding officers soon encountered Damien M. Buxton and the apartment resident, Tiffani S. Conn.

Mr. Buxton had sustained multiple life-threatening gunshot wounds and was transported to Holston Valley Hospital by Sullivan County E.M.S. for treatment. Officers soon learned that another individual, Patrick A. Beatty, had already arrived at Holston Valley Hospital seeking treatment for an unexplained life-threatening gunshot wound. Both of these individuals have since recovered from their injuries.

An investigation at the scene by the Kingsport Police Department Criminal Investigations Division and Vice Unit revealed that Ms. Conn was in possession of a large quantity of crack cocaine and a significant amount of cash that was believed to be proceeds from illegal narcotics sales. Ms. Conn was subsequently arrested for Possession of over 26 grams of Cocaine for resale. As her arrest was two years ago, her charges have already been adjudicated.

Mr. Buxton initially identified himself to investigators using a false name. Further inquiry revealed that he was a sex offender who was also wanted on an outstanding warrant. Following treatment, Mr. Buxton was arrested for Identity Theft, Failure to Register as a Sex Offender, and being a Fugitive from Justice. He was also later prosecuted at the Federal level on drug charges directly related to this incident. As his arrest was two years ago, his federal charges have already been adjudicated; however, his state charges are still pending.

A thorough investigation was launched by the K.P.D. Criminal Investigations Division into the circumstances surrounding this incident. Detectives determined that on the night in question, Mr. Beatty and three accomplices, later identified as Demetrius L. Bradley, Michael R. Willis, and Keith D. Henderson, had traveled to Allen Creek Apartments for the express purpose of robbing Mr. Buxton of crack cocaine and money. During the ensuing altercation, both Mr. Buxton and Mr. Beatty were shot.

A Sullivan County Grand Jury recently returned indictments on the four individuals involved in this conspiracy on the following charges:

1) Attempt to Commit Second Degree Murder

2) Reckless Endangerment with a Deadly Weapon

3) Criminal Conspiracy to Commit Aggravated Robbery

4) Criminal Conspiracy to Possess over 26 Grams of Cocaine for Sale or Delivery

5) Aggravated Burglary

6) Attempt to Commit Aggravated Burglary

On May 7, 2015, bench warrants were issued for their arrest. Mr. Bradley, Mr. Willis, and Mr. Beatty have since been taken into custody, with each currently being held in lieu of a $100,000 bond. Mr. Henderson is already incarcerated within the Tennessee Department of Corrections on unrelated charges and will be served with his warrant while in their custody.
