June 27, 2017 – The Sequatchie County Sheriff's Department, in cooperation with the Dunlap Police Department (DPD) reported this week the recovery of a stolen vehicle and the arrest of two people in connection with the theft.

Danielle Bradford, 24, and Jesse Cranmore, 26, both of Dunlap, were arrested Friday, June 23, and charged with theft over $5,000, according to Sheriff's Department Detective Jason Harvey.

Harvey said officers were dispatched to a residence on Highland Drive Friday to investigate a theft. The homeowners were out of town, and their son had spotted their 1987 Chevy Silverado going through Dunlap on US 127 near the Cherry Street intersection.

The county issued a “BOLO” (Be On the Look Out) to the city police department. They received a call saying the truck had been seen filling up at the Hi-Tech gas station. DPD Sergeant Lynn Lewis responded and stopped the truck at the US 127-TN 28 traffic light, Harvey said. He arrested the couple in the truck and delivered them to the Sheriff's Department, where they were interviewed and booked into the jail.

In addition to theft, Bradford also was charged with unlawful possession of a weapon, for having a set of brass knuckles, Harvey said.
