Criminal Charges Filed In Two Cases

Criminal charges are pending today against two Cookeville men, charged in separate cases. Authorities say 47-year-old Mark E. Jackson of Parragon Road was arrested on a theft of property charge after an investigation by Detective Sgt. Tammy Goolsby. Jackson is accused of stealing a utility trailer from a home on Sugartree Pointe over the weekend. He goes to court on the charge November 23rd. Meanwhile, a November 9th court date has been set for a Jackson County man charged with burglarizing a Cookeville business last week. 27-year-old James Kendall Martin of P. Brewington Road, is accused of being the man caught on a store surveillance video at Builders Supply. The business, located on Scott Street, was broken into on October 14th by someone who apparently removed a window air-conditioner and stacked up a pile of stones to gain access. What the thief apparently didn't know is that his movements were captured on tape as he ransacked the office areas and stole about three hundred dollars.
