Tennessee Highway Patrol is in charge of a crash investigation on Interstate 75 after an 18-wheeler reportedly left the interstate and crashed into a wooded area near Exit 33 Wednesday evening about 10.

The driver sustained minor injuries, according to officials on the scene.

The driver was trapped inside the rig and was extricated by BCFR personnel.

He was taken to SkyRidge Medical Center for evaluation, according to Clark.

- An investigation is under way in items reportedly pawned at a local pawnshop by a person who allegedly told the rightful owner he would return the items to him.

According to a report filed by officer Josh Nix of the Cleveland Police Department, Cade William Engebretson had been staying with a friend and the friend’s father.

Several months ago, Engebretson moved out and left a 32-inch television, clothing, a Sony PlayStation, games and movies.

When he went back a few days later to move the rest of his belongings, Engebretson learned they were not there.

Engebretson was finally able to contact his friend, who told him he had pawned the property but would get it back.

Several months passed and Engebretson discovered his friend had moved out of town.

Engebretson reportedly waited to report the incident, “because he was trying to be nice and give” his friend the opportunity to return the items.

According to the report, the property was valued at $1,695.

Investigation has been turned over to detective Walter Mitchell of Cleveland Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Division.

- A Nipper Drive resident reported someone took a chainsaw from his residence. The chainsaw had just been purchased a few days earlier.

According to a report filed by deputy Robert Jones of the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office, he spoke with Joe Nipper who said he had bought the saw Sunday.

Nipper stored the saw which was still in the box, inside his storage building.

When he went to retrieve the saw Tuesday, Nipper discovered it had been stolen.

The saw was valued at $133.
