Two women were arrested June 17 after giving Loudon County Sheriff’s Office deputies false reports.

LCSO Deputy Kenny Palmer responded to a call for a potential domestic violence incident in a tent on Jackson Bend Road. Elizabeth Ann Sanford, 39, and Laurel Ann Smith, 24, were screaming at Palmer, “Go get them. They had a knife,” Palmer wrote in a report.

The women told Palmer they were in the tent when someone “slashed the tent open with a knife” and started destroying their stuff. The campsite had been trashed and their belongings had been thrown into the nearby water. The women gave Palmer written statements of what allegedly happened.

Palmer called other LCSO deputies to the scene, including Deputy Chance Gray with his K9 partner, to track the suspects. Deputies exhausted all efforts to find the suspects with no success. However, they were able to find the complainant who called 911 and told dispatchers the two women were arguing. There were no other suspects.

Palmer separated the women and told them what the complainant said, which prompted them to tell the truth.

“Ms. Smith stated her and Ms. Sanford, who are dating, got into an argument over being homeless and having nowhere to go,” Palmer wrote in a report. “Ms. Smith stated that she started hitting Ms. Sanford and then at some point went outside and started throwing stuff in the lake. Ms. Smith also stated that she took a pocketknife and slashed the tent. Ms. Sanford stated she did not hit Ms. Smith but did throw items in the lake because Ms. Smith was but then went out there to get them.”

Sanford, homeless, was charged with false reports/statements and held on $5,000 bond.

Smith, homeless, was charged with domestic assault-misdemeanor and false reports/statements and held on $6,000 bond.

Florida man charged

A Dunnellon, Fla., man was arrested Thursday for kidnapping and domestic assault charges.

A woman’s friend called the Loudon County 911 Center after receiving a text from the woman that said, “Help,” with no other information. The friend tried to contact the woman and was unable to reach her and was aware of the woman’s history of domestic violence with Nicholas Michael Costeines, 38, LCSO Lt. Inv. Charlie Cosner wrote in a report.

LCSO Cpl. Chris Jenkins, Cpl. Ernie Brown and Deputy Jason Goddard arrived at the woman’s residence but were unable to find her. After entering the house, deputies found the woman with a black eye and bruising on her face, arms and legs. Deputies found Costeines in the home and detained him.

The woman told deputies she was washing her car at home June 17 when Costeines became angry over her receiving a text from another man. The argument escalated until Costeines pushed the woman and she retaliated by scratching his neck. Costeines then began hitting the woman with a closed fist, which caused bruises. The woman could not leave the house because Costeines threw her keys onto the roof. He also tied her legs together with wire cable while she slept to prevent her from leaving, Cosner wrote in a report.

Costeines was charged with kidnapping and domestic assault-felony and held without bond.
