Cookeville Burglary Suspect Escapes

Chattanooga Police have been instructed to be on the lookout for a patient who had been undergoing treatment at Moccasin Bend Mental Health Institute. Authorities say the man is Joseph Boswell, a suspect in a Putnam County burglary case, who escaped from Moccasin Bend around 7:30 Sunday evening. Boswell was scheduled to be released from the facility on Monday. Police say Boswell has charges pending against him in Cookeville after he was found walking in the area of three business burglaries on South Jefferson Avenue earlier this month. Items taken in those burglaries were found nearby. Boswell is 21 years old, about six feet tall, weighs 204 lbs., has brown hair and eyes. If you've seen Boswell call police.
