Forced entry was evident in a burglary of a Golf Drive business.

According to a report filed by deputy Darren Miller of the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office, Tim Ware of Landscaping by Tim Ware said someone broke into his storage building and took an Echo backpack leaf blower and two Echo string trimmers.

The burglary occurred Thursday or Friday, according to the report.

A significant amount of damage was also done to the roll-up door leading into the building, according to the report filed by Miller.

Ware valued the missing items at $1,050. Damage to the door was assessed at $50.

Investigation is continuing.

- An Old Fort woman was arrested on alleged narcotics violations after a traffic stop in south Bradley County.

Deputy Darren Miller took Rachel Headrick into custody after he observed her vehicle cross the center line while traveling on Union Road.

During questioning, Headrick appeared very nervous, according to Miller’s report.

Miller noticed a “bulge” in the front pocket of Headrick’s pants and Headrick eventually pulled out a bag of suspected marijuana. She also reportedly had a pipe in her pocket.

After a vehicle search, Miller located four small bags of suspected methamphetamine and additional drug paraphernalia.

Headrick was taken to the Bradley County Jail where she was booked on simple possession of Schedule II and VI charges, along with possession of drug paraphernalia.

- Tennessee Highway Patrol will be conducting Driver’s License Roadside Safety Checkpoints in Bradley County this week. Officials with THP and Bradley County Sheriff’s Office also continue to watch for driver violations in school zones.

The checkpoints will be set up in random location in the county.

According to THP officials, checkpoints are an effective means of recognizing the dangers presented to the driving public, by motorists who would violate the driver’s license laws of the state.

All scheduled checkpoints are contingent upon weather conditions and manpower availability.
