Robbery Suspect Arrested

A Cookeville man, who had been implicated in an aggravated robbery on Sunday, has now been arrested by police on a separate warrant. Officer Anthony Reep says he noticed a car almost run the red light at the intersection of Willow Avenue and Jackson Street early Monday morning. He says when he ran the tag, he learned that the registered owner, 22-year-old Thomas Bindi of Cane Creek Road, had an outstanding warrant pending against him. Reep says authorities found a cell phone in Bindi's right front pocket that had been reported taken during an alleged robbery. But he says Bindi claims there was no robbery. According to him, the victim had been in the back seat of his car and had left his phone there. Further investigation is underway.
