Teens Facing Several Charges
Are Due In Court Again Feb. 28

Two teenagers facing numerous charges, including attempted aggravated robbery, attempted aggravated burglary and aggravated animal cruelty made their initial court appearance on Monday.

In addition to these charges, 19-year-old Wesley B. Sayler, of 7540 Horton Hwy., also faces a charge of arson.

Sayler and 18-year-old Johnathan Taylor Cox, of 19525 Horton Hwy., allegedly planned a burglary and robbery at a home on Gardner Lane in the early morning hours of Saturday, according to the Greene County Sheriff's Department.

Their pickup truck, parked in a driveway along a neighboring road, alerted a nearby family, leading to their arrest prior any robbery taking place, according to Sheriff Steve Burns.

Burns said Monday that the department believes Sayler tried to run before deputies arrived, allegedly choosing to hide in a nearby barn along Fodderstack Mountain Loop.

That barn burned early Saturday morning, prompting deputies to charge Sayler with arson.

Both Sayler and Cox were arrested on Saturday.

In Greene County General Sessions Court on Monday, their preliminary court date was set for Feb. 28, according to Circuit Court Clerk Pam Venerable.

Sayler told the court that he will obtain his own lawyer, while Cox accepted a public defender, Venerable said.

Sayler remained jailed under $85,000 bond this morning, while Cox remained in jail under a $75,000 bond.
