Tennessee Highway Patrol is in charge of a single-vehicle crash which occurred earlier today on Dalton Pike.

According to 911 reports, two occupants of a pickup truck were headed south on Dalton Pike.

The driver was pulling a small trailer when the vehicle left the roadway and clipped utility poles.

Power lines were reportedly down in the area and lying across the truck.

The male and female occupants were not injured in the crash.

Also responding to the scene were Bradley County Sheriff’s Office deputies, Bradley County Emergency Medical Service and Bradley County Fire-Rescue.

- Bradley County deputies opened an investigation into what appeared to be an apparent break-in attempt at a Cohulla Road residence.

Audy Cowsky said she had been away from her residence during the weekend. When she returned Wednesday, she discovered several knives on her front porch.

Further review revealed a screen had been cut away from a window and pry marks were on a door frame.

Deputy Cru Ross noted in his report that there were no signs that anyone made entry into the home.

The knives were collected as evidence and taken to the Bradley County Jail.

Investigation is ongoing, according to Ross.

- A traffic stop on Georgetown Road resulted in the arrest of a man wanted on a felony warrant.

Matthew Wagner also faced new charges after alleged narcotics were found inside his pocket during a search.

According to a report filed by deputy Daniel Marlow, Wagner was reportedly speeding on Georgetown Road when the officer conducted a traffic stop.

Wagner was found to have a warrant for his arrest.

After searching his person, Marlow found suspected hydrocodone in Wagner’s pocket, according to his report.

Wagner was arrested and charged with simple possession of Schedule III, speeding and served the felony warrant for prior charges.
