Unauthorized Radio Transmission Investigated
Cookeville police say a local resident is breaking both state and federal laws by interrupting the radio transmissions of the city police department. They have encountered a number of incidents over the past few weeks in which someone with a radio tuned to the police frequency is getting on-air and either taunting officers or giving out false information. Authorities say there are methods for tracing such unauthorized transmissions and say they plan to prosecute whoever is responsible.
