Two are arrested on multiple charges

Posted
Two Cleveland motorcyclists were arrested Tuesday by the Cleveland Police Department on multiple charges, including violating Gov. Bill Lee’s general emergency provision.
 
According to CPD Public Information Officer  Evie West, at approximately 6:20 a.m., CPD officers were dispatched to check on motorcycles that were parked in an area behind Target on Frontage Road.
 
When the officers arrived, West said they observed two males who appeared to be strapping down two motorcycles on a trailer hooked to a black single-cab Ford pickup truck. 
 
A warrant check of the subjects, Dustin Lemons and Aaron Patterson, revealed an active felony theft warrant on Lemons.
 
 West said all vehicles were checked through the National Crime Database, revealing the Ford truck was stolen out of Bradley County.   
 
The suspects were then placed in handcuffs and read their Miranda Rights. 
 
The CPD contacted the owners of the motorcycles, who both stated they were unaware their motorcycles had been stolen. In addition to locating the stolen motorcycles, officers found a yellow sock containing drug paraphernalia, West said.
 
Patterson and Lemons were charged with three counts of motor vehicle theft, unlawful drug paraphernalia and General Emergency Provision (violation of the governor’s executive order).
 
Lee’s stay-at-home order, signed last week, mandates that all Tennessee residents must stay at home unless engaged in essential activity or services.
