On 05/17/2017, officers of the Johnson City Police Department arrested Sigmund Gordon (1305 E Holston Ave #2, 18 years old) and charged him with Possession of Stolen Property over $1000.
The arrest stems from an investigation into a vehicle that was reported stolen from Nashville, TN. The investigation revealed that Mr Gordon purchased a vehicle from Discount Motors in Madison, TN and stopped making payments. The vehicle was repossessed and towed to the impound lot in Madison, TN. The vehicle was then stolen from the impound lot. A GPS on the vehicle showed it was in Johnson City, TN and investigators located the vehicle in front of 1305 E Holston Ave, which is where Mr Gordon resides. A receipt found in the vehicle led investigators to recover a video from a local convenience store that showed Mr Gordon driving the reported stolen auto.
A warrant was obtained for Mr Gordon and he was located walking down the road on 05/17/2017. He was placed under arrest and transported to the Washington County Detention Center, where he is being held in lieu of a $10,000 bond. Arraignment is set for 10:00 a.m. on 05/17/17 in Washington County General Sessions Court.
