Man dies in four-wheeler accident

Tuesday, November 8, 2005

A Unionville-area man was killed late Monday afternoon when he was thrown off his four-wheeler near Rover.

Jacky Lanier, 45, of Jack Taylor Road died in the accident on Kingdom Road near Jack Taylor Road intersection about 4:30 p.m., Deputy Mike Carrick said.

"He ran off the road and was ejected from the four-wheeler," State Trooper D'Angelo Inman said.

Investigators were uncertain as to why Lanier was thrown off.

Lanier, who investigators said was not wearing a helmet, is Bedford County's 12th traffic fatality of 2005.

Boy finds loaded gun

A "cocked," loaded pistol was found by a 4-year-old boy in grass behind a Gowen Drive home Saturday.

Police said the black, 9mm Helwan pistol, found near the residence of adult Julia Martinez, had one round in the chamber and six more in its clip.

The boy told his mother who called police, Officer Bill Logue said.

Drug charges

Police say they found marijuana in the possession of two men allegedly involved in a disturbance with several other people outside Kentucky Fried Chicken, Madison Street, early Friday night.

Jason Martin Larion, 21, Tee Pee Lane, was arrested some time after the incident after running from officers while being "patted down" for drugs or weapons by Officer Gregg Loyd. Larion was last seen behind First Christian Church, Officer Tracey Nelson said.

A partially-smoked marijuana cigarette and two packs of rolling papers were found in Larion's car, police said.

Larion turned himself in at police headquarters Saturday.

Charges of evading arrest, possession of a schedule VI drug and possession of drug paraphernalia were filed against Larion, records indicate. Larion was released on $4,000 bond.

Victor Keyonta Taylor, 18, East Cedar Street, stayed at the scene. A bag containing what police say "appeared to be marijuana" was found in a pocket.

Taylor was charged with possession of a schedule VI drug and released on $1,000 bond.

* Two marijuana "roaches" were found early Saturday in a car occupied by Valerie Marie Habel, 39, Gowen Drive, behind T.C.'s Sports Bar, Madison Street, Officer Jerry Lawrence said.

Habel, who "was in an intoxicated state and making a nuisance of herself," according to Lawrence, was charged with public intoxication and simple possession. She posted $1,500 bond at Bedford County Jail.

Thefts, burglaries

A rifle was apparently stolen from an Old Columbia Road home before it burned Thursday night, investigators say.

Kirstie Adams told Chief Mark Thomas of Volunteer Fire Services, Inc. as they inspected the remains of her home that a Marlin semi-automatic .22 caliber rifle was gone. The barrel, which would have survived the flames, was gone, Thomas said.

A box of ammunition was found in the home's yard. The box had no smoke or water damage, Deputy Lindsey Puckett of the Bedford County Sheriff's Department said.

Other burglaries and thefts reported to area authorities:

* A pickup truck stolen from a Nashville hotel's parking lot was later found on blocks and burning early Saturday near Shelbyville.

The 2003 Chevrolet truck, owned by Nathaniel Joseph Dickey of Potts Road, was ablaze at the boat ramp beside the Duck River bridge on U.S. 41-A South at 2 a.m.

Dickey told Deputy Nikia Elliott he had last seen the truck at 10:30 p.m. Friday in the hotel's parking lot.

The truck's grille had been stolen, Elliott said.

* Subwoofers and two amplifiers were stolen from the home of Shaira N. Brinkley, Purdy Court, between Wednesday and Saturday of last week.

* A flat tire and dead battery didn't prevent the theft of a riding lawn mower from behind the Catina J. Leverette home, Enon Church Road, during the day Tuesday of last week, according to a BCSD report not released until Monday.

Other week-old reports:

Another lawn mower, plus a tiller, were taken between Oct. 25-31 from the Billy David Williams residence, Fairfield Pike.

* Newly-installed cabinets were stolen Nov. 1 from a home under construction on Stephens Lane, off New Hope Road.

* Two white and gray nanny goats were stolen from a field on Hannah Gap Road in southwest Bedford County Tuesday or Wednesday of last week.

Joe Williams Jr. said the goats were worth $70 each.

Dogs stolen

Two more in a recent series of possible dog thefts may have occurred.

Carrie Sain told Puckett two dogs -- a white with black "mask" female Papilon and gray, male Norwegian elk hound -- went missing from her Peggy Lane home Friday.

The dogs are valued at $1,200 apiece, Puckett's report said.

* A 6-month-old, brown and white pit bull was taken from outside the home of Sandra Brewer, Knob Creek Road, Wartrace, between 3:15-4 p.m. Tuesday of last week.

The BCSD report, not released until Monday, said a neighbor saw a "boy" put the dog in his car and drive away.
