Sevierville police arrested a man Monday in connection with a burglary at Lee’s Total Healthcare Pharmacy in Sevierville.
An investigation by the Sevierville Police Department of an alleged burglary at Lee’s Total Healthcare Pharmacy at 725 Parkway in Sevierville on the morning of Monday, Sept. 21, 2015 determined three male suspects left the business in a black Land Rover.
Officer Bruce Belitz spotted a vehicle fitting that description near Main Street and North Parkway at about 12:40 p.m. Officer Belitz learned the license plate on the Land Rover was stolen and when he attempted to stop the vehicle, the driver led police on a short car chase through the downtown area. The suspect struck a vehicle that stopped in a line of traffic on northbound Winfield Dunn Parkway near King Street. That crash resulted in two additional cars and a police patrol SUV being hit.
Sevierville Police officers quickly apprehended the driver of the Land Rover, identified as 43-year old Robert F. Nunley II, of Tracy City, Tenn., after he tried to flee on foot and transported him to the Sevier County Jail for booking. Officers charged Nunley with felony evading arrest; felony vandalism; reckless driving; aggravated assault; vehicle theft; possession of burglary tools; and using a stolen vehicle license plate. Additional charges are pending.
All persons are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
