Circuit Court Judge Mike Pemberton has relied on landline phones to make calls this week.
His reversion to that old-school form of communication is not due to a feeling of nostalgia, however.
“My cellphone was stolen on Sunday,” he said.
Pemberton said the theft occurred at the Rocky Top Market in Rockwood.
“He did a report on it,” Rockwood Police Chief Danny Wright said. “We have a suspect we’re still trying to locate.”
