2nd Person Charged in TTU Incident

A second person has now been charged in connection with an incident at a Tennessee Tech dormitory this week. Police say 20-year-old Jerred Griggs of Sparta is now charged with robbery, along with 19-year-old Darrion Jerome Brown of Nashville. According to TTU police, Griggs had met two individuals at a local pool hall who reportedly told him that they had drugs to sell and a large amount of money. Griggs then reportedly called Brown, who agreed to a meeting in the laundry room at Dunn Hall dormitory. Brown was reportedly going to buy drugs from the men, but ended up robbing the would-be drug dealer of all the money and the drugs. Tech officials say the individuals used a stolen Tech ID card to gain access to the building, although Brown had reportedly been living there with another student. Both will be in court on October 26th.
