Felony Fugitive Found Hiding In Apartment
Cookeville police say they have arrested a man wanted on felony theft charges out of Jackson County -- after allegedly finding him hiding under a sink at a local apartment complex. Officers went to Cherry Creek Apartments on West 8th Street after receiving information that 27-year-old Jared Alvin Hix of Gainesboro might be found there. They say they heard conversation as they approached the apartment, but received no response when they knocked on the door. Officers then got the manager of the apartment complex to let them in and reportedly searched the residence, finding Hix hiding in a cabinet underneath a sink in the kitchen area. He was taken into custody to be returned to Jackson County.
