Another False Report Given To Algood Police

Another false report has been given to Algood police about a crime that didn't happen exactly as the victims described. Police chief Jim Eldridge says that 20-year-old Nicholas Lee Slatten of Cookeville and 18-year-old Kenneth Allen Hill of Sparta initially reported that they had been robbed as they drove along Wall Street Tuesday night. But the chief says their story did not add up, and further investigation revealed that while the two had, indeed, lost some money it was part of what Eldridge described as a "drug deal gone bad." They have now been charged with filing a false report, while 36-year-old Christopher Doyle Lafever of Cookeville was charged with felony theft for allegedly taking money from the "victims" and running off without providing any drugs.
