Huntingdon Police Reports


Multiple Charges — Warrants have been issued against Zachary Jamison (age and address not provided) for DUI (first offense), felony evading, reckless endangerment, drug paraphernalia, driving on a suspended license, speeding, and failure to maintain lane after a Dec. 24 high-speed vehicular pursuit and crash.

According to the report by Officer Labe Ezell, he observed a 1998 Chevy Blazer driven by Jamison traveling east on Buena Vista Road, and due to prior knowledge that Jamison’s license was suspended, Ezell tried to conduct a traffic stop. Jamison accelerated to speeds up to 90 mph and Ezell pursued, though he noted that he backed off a couple of times when he felt the pursuit was getting too dangerous. The pursuit ended when Jamison attempted to turn onto Blue Lane and his vehicle left the roadway, struck a stop sign and then a tree. Jamison was transported from the scene by ambulance to Baptist Memorial Hospital-Carroll County and then flown to Vanderbilt Medical Center. During a search of Jamison’s vehicle, officers found multiple alcoholic beverages (some empty and some full) and digital scales with what appeared to be drug residue. Ezell noted that he contacted Vanderbilt the next day and was advised that Jamison was doing well, though experiencing some pain.

Theft — Elizabeth A. McCord, 51, of Atwood was charged with theft of merchandise under $1,000 and burglary on Dec. 9.

According to the report by Officer Ethan Parham, McCord entered Walmart in Huntingdon in violation of an active no trespassing order and took a number of items valued together at $51 without paying for them.

Warrant, Shoplifting — Tiffany Jo Miller, 39, of Memphis was charged with theft of merchandise under $1,000 and Justin Miller (age and address not provided) was arrested for an active warrant on Dec. 22 at Walmart in Huntingdon.

According to the report by Officer Zachery Barker, he and other officers went to Walmart and spoke with Mr. Miller and Ms. Miller, who were suspected of shoplifting. It was discovered that Mr. Miller was wanted on a warrant out of Tipton County. Ms. Miller was found to be in possession of several stolen items.

Public Intoxication — Richard Lee Wyrick, 54, of Huntingdon was charged with public intoxication on Dec. 15 in Huntingdon.

Officer Joseph Hedge reported that he went to a residence on Jones Street and found Wyrick to be under the influence of some sort of narcotic. Wyrick told Hedge he had been taking muscle relaxers. Hedge determined Wyrick was a danger to himself and the public and took him into custody.
