Vehicle Break-Ins Suspect, 19, Held; Items Found In Car

A 19-year-old Afton man charged Monday night with driving under the influence is an apparent suspect in a flurry of vehicle break-ins around Greeneville.

Cody M. Ferguson, of 42 Melody Circle, was driving a white Chevrolet Cavalier similar to descriptions of a car given by several theft victims.

Radio/CD players, speakers, amplifiers and other equipment stolen from several vehicles Monday were found inside the car when it was stopped at the Greeneville Commons shopping center, police reports said.

Greeneville police were on the lookout for the Cavalier.

Officer Tina Janeway spoke with Ferguson in the shopping center parking lot after spotting the vehicle about 10:35 p.m. Monday, a report said.

"His speech was slow, and he could not keep his head up while he was speaking to me," the report said.

"Mr. Ferguson fell asleep in the back of the cruiser and [later] stated he had forgotten he was ever in a police car."

Ferguson did poorly on field sobriety tests, and admitted to taking Seroquil, hydrocodone, oxycodone and Valium earlier in the night, the report said.

Beginning about 8 p.m. Monday, police started receiving reports of vehicle break-ins.

Thefts from cars were reported in the 800 and 1100 blocks of Arnold Road, 1100 block of West Summer Street, the 1600 block of the Tennessee 70 Bypass, and at at least three locations on East Andrew Johnson Highway.

Witnesses to the break-in on West Summer Street saw a man getting out of the victim's car with a radio/tape player and getting into a white Cavalier, a report said.

Several other thefts from vehicles reported Sunday night may be related, based on victim descriptions of the crimes in reports, police said.

Ferguson is held on $1,000 bond, pending a first scheduled General Sessions Court appearance on Wednesday.
