Ten rolls of fencing materials and other items were reportedly stolen from a construction site on Bancroft Road during the weekend.

According to a report filed by deputy Matt Landolt of the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office, he responded to the site and spoke with Virgil Bryant of Bryant Brother’s Fencing.

Ten rolls of fencing, 33 top rails, 40 line posts, 10 rolls of barbed wire and associated items were missing.

According to the report, the fencing was possibly being constructed to secure a solar panel system which is on the property.

The area was placed under extra patrol by Bradley County deputies, according to the report.

Bryant estimated his loss at $1,987.20.

- After being dispatched to a Pea Street address Friday, Landolt arrested one person on warrants and found alleged narcotics in a suspect’s possession as he did a search of the suspect’s property and person.

According to his report, Cody Pace was sitting on the steps at the rear of the residence where the theft was reported.

Pace was taken into custody after Landolt learned of two failure to appear on violation of probation warrants.

While searching Pace, Landolt discovered a narcotic “which he didn’t have a prescription for” inside Pace’s pants pocket.

Further investigation revealed a number of alleged drug paraphernalia items such as pipes and digital scales. The items were found in a backpack at the scene.

Pace was taken to the Bradley County Jail where he was booked on the warrants as well as new charges of possession of Schedule IV drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia.

- The Bradley County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Unit continues to warn drivers who may violate the driving laws of the state of Tennessee, that deputies are watching for those violators.

“We have lost too many people to the tragedy of traffic crashes,” Sgt. Andy Smith said. “Our deputies are working hard to keep drivers and their passengers safe. We want to avoid tragic circumstances and possible life-altering crashes as we head toward the holiday season. Please slow down, pay attention and take advantage of the safety equipment such as seat belts in your car. Take away the opportunity by being aware of the consequences of not following the laws of driving.”
