Two Lenoir City men were arrested after breaking and entering multiple houses Thursday.

Loudon County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Detective Jerramie Bowen responded to reports of a suspicious vehicle at a residence on Browder Hollow Road where Cpl. Chris Jenkins, Cpl. Brian Smith and Deputies Keith Swinney and Kevin Parks were already on the scene. When Jenkins arrived, the back door of the residence was open, and he announced himself to two individuals, Ryan David Jordan, 35, and Jeremy Daniel Wample, 37, inside the home, Bowen wrote in a report.

Wample and Jordan exited the home, and Jenkins asked if they were supposed to be there. The two men admitted they were there uninvited. Both men said they had been there about 30 minutes prior to LCSO showing up. The men told Bowen they were looking for a “homeless subject” and had been in three or four houses before this one, according to a report.

Jordan admitted to stealing 30 cents from the home, and that it was on the hood of his van. Inside Jordan’s van, Bowen found a black bag containing two two-way radios, rubber gloves, binoculars and a flathead screwdriver. A pat down of Jordan revealed a loaded firearm on the right side of his waistband.

Jenkins found evidence of forced entry consistent with a screwdriver on the back door, and the homeowner said nobody was supposed to be there, Bowen wrote in a report.

Jordan was charged with aggravated burglary, possession of burglary tools, theft and possession of a firearm during a dangerous felony and held without bond.

Wample was charged with aggravated burglary, possession of burglary tools and theft and held without bond.

Drugged man attacks womanA Lenoir City man was arrested Saturday after attacking a woman in front of her daughter.

Lenoir City Police Officer Jaime Ketner arrived at a hotel in response to a possible theft. In the hotel parking lot, Ketner met Dustin Ray Shirk, 33. The woman told Ketner that Shirk came to her room and demanded money that he thought belonged to the cartel.

The woman said Shirk held her down on the bed while he demanded the money and was “talking out of his head,” according to a report. The woman’s 6-year-old daughter witnessed the incident.

After speaking with Shirk, Ketner believed Shirk was under the influence of methamphetamine. Shirk admitted he did “a quarter of a 20 bag” of meth. While being transported to the jail, Shirk was “talking about unicorns and other things that didn’t make sense,” Ketner wrote in a report.

Shirk was charged with domestic assault-misdemeanor and public intoxication and held on $2,000 bond.
