The Knox County Sheriff’s Office congratulates March’s Officers of the Month, Officers Eric Davis, Chris Stewart, and Chris Wallace.
On April 22nd, two consecutive armed robberies occurred in West Knox County. Officers David and Stewart located and attempted to stop the suspect vehicle on Carl Valentine Circle. The suspects fled in their vehicle and after a brief pursuit, the vehicle was safely stopped. A male juvenile was taken into custody and a second suspect fled on foot. Officer Wallace, who was following the pursuit, spotted the second suspect fleeing into the Shannondale Nursing Home complex. He deployed his K-9, George, when the suspect resisted his commands.
