Two individuals were sentenced recently following a break
in last year.
According to authorities, around the first of May in 2012 a
break in occurred at 2909 Standing Stone Hwy., the home of Tina and Dan Gieo,
while the family was out of town. Once the family arrived in town on May 6,
they reported the break in to the Overton County Sheriff’s Department.
By May 17, Overton County Sheriff’s Detective Tom
Rosecrants had interviewed Mitchell G. Falcon, an alleged party involved.
Falcon confessed to aggravated burglary and theft of property. The
investigation then turned to David M. Fetterolf, who was identified as a
suspect in the break in. Once interviewed, Fetterolf confessed to aggravated
burglary and theft of property.
When Fetterolf was interviewed he was also in possession of
a pair of shoes that were stolen from the house. The department then received
consent to search the home of Fetterolf. Upon searching the home on Bowers
Road, multiple items from the burglary were found in the residence.
After the evidence was collected and the statements were
gathered, the case was presented to the Grand Jury. The Grand Jury handed down
indictments for both subjects. Falcon was found to be living in Bowling Green,
KY. Upon receiving information upon the whereabouts of Falcon, Detective
Rosecrants sent copies of the indictment to the Bowling Green Sheriff’s
Department to have Falcon extradited back to Overton County.
Falcon and Fetterolf plead guilty to aggravated burglary
and theft of property over $60,000. Fetterolf appeared in Criminal Court on May
13 of this year and plead guilty. He was sentenced to eight years, split
confinement to one year and serve the remaining on probation. One and two
concurrent for an effective eight-year sentence. Falcon was also sentenced to
the same thing after her plead at an earlier date.
The Tennessee Highway Patrol Criminal Investigation
Division helped in the recovery of a John Deere Gator.
Detective Rosecrants stated, “$207,180 worth of things were
stolen from the residence.”
