Cookeville Police Arrest Felony Fugitive

A man wanted in Iowa on felony drug charges has been arrested by Cookeville police, and a Cookeville woman who lied to police about the fugitive's whereabouts is also facing charges. Officers say they went to the 20th Street home of 48-year-old Thomas Allen Martin to serve the warrant on him, but found that he wasn't home. They say they questioned a woman at the residence, who told them she didn't know anyone named Thomas. When Martin walked up a short time later, the woman -- identified as 35-year-old Glenna Yvonne Jones -- admitted that she DID know him and knew that he lived at the residence. She was charged with making a false report. He was taken into custody for extradition back to Iowa.
