Cookeville was once again the location Wednesday of the arrest of a fugitive wanted in another county. According to the Gallatin News-Examiner, 18-year-old Steven Searcy, was located in Cookeville Wednesday and was being held on a $10,000 bond at the Putnam County Jail on unrelated charges. He and another man have been charged with attempted murder in connection with what police determined was a gang-related shooting in Gallatin last week. In addition to attempted murder, both men have been charged with especially aggravated kidnapping and reckless endangerment.
