"Homeless" Individuals Charged With Trespassing

Cookeville police say two people who claim to be homeless are facing trespassing and other criminal charges today after being found in the loft of a barn on Bouton Bend Road. Sgt. Steve Marcrom says that 36-year-old Troy Dale Dillon and 26-year-old Melanie Harris Randolph had been told by the property owners to not be in the barn and says they were told again in his presence. He says the two had warrants pending in Putnam County for unpaid fines in other cases, so he had them transported to the jail. Marcrom says the property owner planned to pursue criminal trespass warrants on both.
