Court Date Set For Suspect In Motor Home Theft


A June 14th court appearance has been scheduled for a Cookeville woman, accused of stealing a motor home. A Putnam County sheriff's deputy first noticed that 28-foot long motor home weaving along Fisk Road late Thursday night and learned that it had been reported stolen from a house on Freedom Avenue. The driver of the vehicle was identified as 49-year-old Rowena Fuchsberger, who police say gave a Freedom Avenue address. According to reports, Fuchsberger and the victim, who are related, had been living in the same house, and Fuchsberger had borrowed the man's truck earlier in the day and had not returned it. She later phoned the man and told him his truck had broken down on Holladay Road and asked him to come get her. The man told police that he went to Holladay Road and searched, but did not find Fuchsberger or his truck so he returned home. And that's when he found that his Coachman motor home had been stolen while he was gone. Sheriff's deputy Jeremy Nash came upon while he was investigating reports of a possibly intoxicated woman knocking on doors in the area of Quinland Lake Road.
