    Music is Terry Price’s livelihood and passion. As a church choir director, he has performed all over the world. “I just feel like have the greatest job in the world. I do what I love,” he told Ivanhoe. But one day the music he loved so much became painful. “All of a sudden the higher pitches, instead of sounding like single notes, sounded like clusters of screeches, and it was unimaginably bad. It was terrible,” Price said. Price had tinnitus: a constant high-pitched ringing in the ears. He ...

A total of 9 suspects are under arrest after our first-ever Monday's Most Wanted Round-up.

Here are the names of the suspects arrested by the Washington County Sheriff's Office.

 

  • Christiana Renea Cochran
  • Kenny Dale Carpenter
  • Jason R Beam
  • Mark Dwayne Beam
  • Carson Ray Glass
  • Jerry T Cummmings

The WCSO also arrested three other suspects who were not featured during the broadcasts but who were the subject of phone-in tips during the show.


PREVIOUS STORY

Half a dozen criminal suspects were arrested by local law enforcement Monday evening after a first-ever live broadcast event that aired on News Channel 11 WJHL-TV.

The "Monday's Most Wanted Roundup" allowed viewers to phone in tips after seeing almost three dozen mug shots shown on air and here on WJHL.Com.

The suspects were men and women wanted for criminal prosecution on a variety of charges by the Sullivan County and Washington County Tennessee Sheriff's Office.

Some of the people featured tried different tactics to avoid arrest, officers said.

One man jumped from a second floor window when he discovered that deputies, acting on a tip, were waiting outside.   He was taken to a local hospital for treatment of a sore hip.

Another suspect even tried to call the "Most Wanted" tips line and convince officers they were looking for the wrong man.

"The officers had the house surrounded, and he wouldn't come to the door," said Captain Larry Denny, Washington County Sheriff's Office.   "He actually called in (to the in-studio phone bank) and I talked to him on the phone.   I was actually able to hear as the officers came in the door and yelled at him to let them see his hands."

Monday's Most Wanted is a regular segment on News Channel 11 news in which multiple local law enforcement agencies feature criminal suspects with outstanding warrants for their arrest.

Recognize one of the suspects?  Call the tips lines listed below.


News Channel 11 and area law enforcement agencies need your help locating dozens of MOST WANTED individuals in our area.

We featured the most wanted criminals Monday evening in a 90 minute blitz on News Channel 11. Volunteers were in our studios taking your phone calls and anonymous tips.

Monday evening, your tips lead to the arrests of Jerry Cummings, Carson Glass,  Jason Beam and Kenny Carpenter.

But it's not to late. You can still help. If you recognize someone in our photo gallery or know of their whereabouts call the following agencies:
