Roane County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Tim Phillips and Deputy Wes Stooksbury traveled to Phoenix last week.
The two lawmen weren’t there to sightsee, however. They went to pick up a prisoner from one of the jails in Maricopa County, Ariz.
James. A. Tiegs was wanted in Roane County for a sexual offender registration violation and aggravated sexual battery.
“We flew out Wednesday,” Phillips said. “Stayed the night, got up and went and got our prisoner and flew back.”
