Court Date Set For Man Arrested At Hospital

A December 10th court date has been set for a Cookeville man, arrested while allegedly roaming the halls of Cookeville Regional Medical Center. Police say hospital security officials called them after finding 28-year-old Shannon Dale Kelly of Walnut Avenue on the fifth floor of the hospital. They allege that Kelly had a roll of duct tape and two dry erase markers on him that were hospital property. He was also allegedly seen shoving a bag of pills into his pocket.  He's been charged with theft, illegal possession of drugs, and public intoxication. Kelly had also been arrested last month on theft charges after police say he admitted stealing four cartons of cigarettes from the Rite-Aid pharmacy on South Willow Avenue. He later sold those cartons to a man at Waffle House.
