KINGSPORT — Two people have been arrested after an alert Kingsport resident allegedly spotted them stealing metal from the Lynn View Community Center.
A Kingsport police arrest report said an officer was dispatched to the center, 257 Walker St., at 10:41 Tuesday night. A caller had informed central dispatch that two people were beneath the outside bleachers with flashlights and appeared to have loaded items into a white sedan.
The responding officer passed a white Dodge Neon on Walker Street and stopped it. The officer reported that as he approached the car, he observed two people inside, while the back seats were loaded with a roll of chain link fence and two metal poles.
