An Oliver Springs man who was arrested for an alleged vehicle burglary on Aug. 25 could face more charges in the future.
According to a Roane County Sheriff’s Office report, Deputy Billy Walker responded to 1601 Old Harriman Hwy. to investigate an alleged theft.
The alleged victim, Andrew Sharp, said he saw a male in a black, hooded sweatshirt walking down his driveway.
Sharp also reported that $10 in change was missing from the ash tray in his vehicle.
“I walked to the bottom of the driveway and found a brown wallet with a Tennessee ID card belonging to Jessie Paul Dunham,” Walker reported.
Walker, according to the report, made contact with Dunham in the area of 901 Old Harriman Hwy.
“During a search of the offender I found a large amount of change in his front pockets,” the report said. “The change also had women’s rings, earrings and batteries mixed in with it.”
The report said Dunham, 37, was also found with gift cards, cash, a brown Coach change purse and a bottle of cologne.
He was charged with burglary of an auto and theft under $500.
Roane County Sheriff Jack Stockton said Dunham is a suspect in other break-ins.
“We’re still looking into some other cases to see if he was connected with those,” Stockton said.
