GENERAL NARRATIVE
On May 31, 2020 at approximately 5:15 AM burglars struck two neighboring Kingsport restaurants, Sloopy’s, located at 819 North Eastman Road, and Braeden’s, located at 823 North Eastman Road. Both locations were ransacked. Nothing appears to have been stolen from Sloopy’s; however, a significant amount of cash was stolen from Braeden’s.

Surveillance video footage showed what appeared to be two white male suspects dressed in all dark-colored clothing, with hoods, face masks, and gloves. A picture of one of the suspects, taken from that footage has been included in this release. Note that while his clothing appears to be white in this particular photo, it was in fact dark in color as previously indicated.

KPD e-News Release: K.P.D. Detectives Investigating Case of Credit/Debit Card Fraud

http://Police.KingsportTN.govwww.KingsportPDBlog.com

NEWS RELEASE
SUBJECT: K.P.D. Detectives Investigating Case of Credit/Debit Card Fraud
DATE: May 29, 2020
CASE #: 20-006811
GENERAL NARRATIVE
On March 23, 2020 a Northeast Tennessee resident reported noticing multiple fraudulent charges that had been placed on her credit/debit card account. At least one of these charges was made the previous day at Kroger, located at 1664 East Stone Drive in Kingsport.

At the time this incident occurred, the original physical credit/debit card was still in the victim’s possession, so this is believed to more than likely involve the use of an unlawfully cloned card.

A review of surveillance video revealed footage of a white male suspect responsible for making the fraudulent transaction. A photo of this suspect is included in this release. A clip from the actual footage has also been made available for viewing on the K.P.D. YouTube channel via the link below:

Anyone who recognizes him is asked to contact Detectives in the K.P.D. Criminal Investigations Division at 423-229-9429 or call Kingsport Central Dispatch at 423-246-9111.

NEWS RELEASE

CASE #: 20-010511
GENERAL NARRATIVE
On the morning of May 19, 2020, Nicholas L.

Mr. Massengill is a 38 year old white male. He is approximately 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs roughly 200 pounds. He has brown hair and green eyes.

KPD e-News Release: Kingsport Police Department Honoring Fallen Officers During National Police Week

Kingsport Police Department

David Quillin, Chief of Police

200 Shelby Street • Kingsport, TN 37660

www.KingsportPDBlog.com

NEWS RELEASE
SUBJECT: Kingsport Police Department Honoring Fallen Officers During National Police Week
DATE: May 13, 2020
GENERAL NARRATIVE
In 1962, President John F. Kennedy proclaimed May 15th as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15th falls, as National Police Week. Established by a joint resolution of Congress in 1962, National Police Week pays special recognition to those law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others.

This year, National Police Week takes place from May 10 through 16, 2020. Traditionally, the local Fraternal Order of Police (F.O.P.) Burgess-Mills Lodge #11 conducts a Law Enforcement Memorial Service at the Kingsport Justice Center during National Police Week. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 social distancing guidelines, no service will be able to take place this year.

In remembrance of, and as a tribute to our local fallen officers, as well as all fallen officers throughout the region, state, and nation, a wreath has been placed upon the Kingsport Police Department Law Enforcement Memorial and Eternal Flame, located on the corner of West Market and Clay Streets in Downtown Kingsport. The flags overhead will also fly at half-staff throughout the week.

The local Fraternal Order of Police (F.O.P.) Burgess-Mills Lodge #11 is named in honor of two of the Kingsport Police Department’s Fallen Officers, Patrolman Ira H. Burgess and Patrolman John E. Mills, who were tragically shot and killed in the line of duty in 1950 and 1940 respectively. Information regarding these and all of K.P.D.’s Fallen Officers can be found in the following link:

https://www.KingsportTN.gov/Police-Department/Our-Fallen-Officers/

This year, the names of 307 officers killed in the line of duty will be added to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington D.C. These 307 officers include 135 officers who were killed during 2019, plus 172 officers who died in previous years but whose stories of sacrifice had been lost to history until now. The following inscription is found on the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial:

“This Memorial is dedicated to all Law Enforcement Officers in the United States of America. Inscribed on these walls are the names of those men and women who died in the line of duty. It is not how these officers died that made them heroes. It is how they lived.”

NEWS RELEASE
SUBJECT: Serious Crash Investigation Underway on West Stone Drive (Update)
DATE: May 13, 2020
CASE #: 20-010054
GENERAL NARRATIVE
Update: On May 12, 2020 at approximately 11:20 PM, Kingsport Police Patrol Officers responded to a motor vehicle collision in the 400 block of West Stone Drive in Kingsport. Due to the serious nature of the incident, Crash Reconstructionists with the K.P.D. Traffic Unit were called to the scene. Their subsequent investigation revealed the following:

A black 2001 Dodge Ram 3500 full-size pickup, pulling a utility trailer, was eastbound on West Stone Drive, in the center turn lane, preparing to make a left turn onto Teasel Drive. The pickup was driven and solely occupied by Christian J. Gibson (18 year old male of Church Hill).

Meanwhile, a blue 2006 Suzuki K6R sport motorcycle, operated and solely ridden by Tristan K. McConnell (24 year old male of Kingsport) was westbound on West Stone Drive approaching the same intersection. As the pickup attempted the left turn across the westbound lanes, the motorcycle crashed into it.

Mr. Gibson was not injured; however, Mr. McConnell was killed in the crash. Multiple independent witnesses reported seeing Mr. McConnell travelling at an excessive rate of speed with the front wheel of his motorcycle completely off of the pavement just prior to the collision.

This crash remains under open and active investigation by the K.P.D. Traffic Unit. As such, further information neither can nor will be released at this time.

As previously released:

On May 12, 2020 at approximately 11:20 PM, Kingsport Police Patrol Officers responded to a motor vehicle collision in the 400 block of West Stone Drive in Kingsport. Due to the serious nature of the incident, Crash Reconstructionists with the K.P.D. Traffic Unit have been called to the scene.

Their investigation is just now beginning; therefore, no further details are available for release at this time. Additional information will be shared as it develops, but only at an appropriate point in the investigation. Due to the late hour, an update will likely not be available until sometime the following day at the earliest.

In the meantime, motorists are asked to plan ahead and seek an alternate route, so as to avoid any unnecessary hazards, congestion, or delays. Anyone already in the immediate area is asked to exercise caution, be patient, and obey all traffic instructions for the safety of everyone involved.
