Bradley County officials filed a report for a Lebanon Road resident who said someone had taken two tree stands from his property within the last few weeks.

According to a report filed by deputy David Harper of the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office, Thomas Fox said he has had problems with trespassers on his property during the past several months.

Fox discovered two tree stands missing from a location where he had them stored.

The last time he reportedly saw the stands was Jan. 10. It was unknown when the tree stands had been stolen.

Fox valued the items at $150 each.

- Craftsman tools and other items were reportedly taken from a deceased person’s property and reported by family members.

A report filed by deputy Tim Robinson indicated George Stewart filed the complaint.

According to the report, Stewart said the theft may have occurred sometime in December.

Stewart also said someone entered the garage once again this past weekend and took a Cub Cadet riding mower and two battery chargers.

The total loss was estimated at $1,055.

Investigation is being conducted by the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division.

- Tennessee Highway Patrol will be conducting Driver’s License Roadside Safety Checkpoints in Bradley County beginning this weekend.

The checkpoints will be set up in random location in the county.

According to THP officials, checkpoints are an effective means of recognizing the dangers presented to the driving public, by motorists who would violate the driver’s license laws of the state.

All scheduled checkpoints are contingent upon weather conditions and manpower availability.
