Sheriff's deputies converged on a black KIA sedan just after 11 a.m. Thursday following a traffic stop in the 300 block of Tusuclum Boulevard, near the Niswonger Performing Arts Center.

Inside the car were a man and woman sought on arrest warrants on charges of aggravated robbery, aggravated assault and theft over $10,000.

Taken into custody were Jodie Lamb Crum, 28, of 275 Old Snapps Ferry Road, and Nathan Glenn Knight, 23, of 876 Flag Branch Road.

The 2013 KIA being driven by Crum was reported stolen Wednesday in Greene County, sheriff's Deputy Chuck Humphreys said.

Deputy Travis Hoxie said he and Deputy Shawn Hinkle were on Summer Street when they got behind the car driven by Crum, also identified by authorities in other reports as Jodie Ann Lamb.

"We were coming down Summer Street and got behind them," Hoxie said. "We ran the tag and it came back stolen."

Crum and Knight offered no resistance when arrested, Humphreys said.

Arrest warrants for the pair were taken out on Wednesday.

"We've been looking for them since (then)," said Humphreys, a member of the sheriff's department Warrants Unit.

A search of Crum and Knight after the traffic stop allegedly turned up two syringes, leading to possession of drug paraphernalia charges against both. Crum's driver's license was found to be revoked, and she was also charged with driving on a revoked license-second offense.

Crum was held on no bond, and bond for Knight was set at $86,000. Both are set to appear today in General Sessions Court.

The traffic stop and subsequent arrests of Crum and Knight were good police work, Humphreys said.

"It was a good eye by Deputy Hinkle and Deputy Hoxie," Humphreys said.

Deputies involved in the arrest included Humphreys, Hoxie, Hinkle, Robert Livingston and Ricky Graham.

Crum was also to appear today in Criminal Court on a charge of theft over $10,000 in connection with the theft last year of a vehicle.

Greeneville police charged Crum Wednesday with leaving the scene of an accident and driving on a revoked license.

Officer Cameron Spradlin said in a report that he responded Tuesday afternoon to John Deere Industries on a report of a motor vehicle accident.

The investigation found that Crum allegedly backed a vehicle into an iron fence on the Hal Henard Road property and then left the scene without reporting the accident.
