Fugitive arrested in Red Bank

Police in Red Bank arrested a man Tuesday evening who was wanted by the FBI on five armed robbery charges in Detroit.

Officers found Lorenzo Rumbly, 25, at 1111 Dayton Blvd. after they were sent to investigate a tip that Rumbly might be at the location, according to a news release from the Red Bank Police Department.

Rumbly initially refused to come out but surrendered after a brief negotiation. He was charged locally with violating an order of protection.

Vandalism, trespass charged

Antonio Jackson, 22, was arrested and charged with criminal trespass and vandalism Tuesday night after he kicked and destroyed a stack of bottled water at the Kanku's store at 702 Central Ave. and then kicked the glass front door on his way out of the store, police said.

The store owner told police he had warned Jackson and his associates not to patronize the store but they continued to do so, according to an arrest report.

Woman charged with drug crime

While assisting the U.S. Marshal's Office in the search for a wanted federal fugitive in Ooltewah on Tuesday night, officers from the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office arrested Pamela McCord, 42, for resisting arrest and possession of a controlled substance, an arrest report said. A search of McCord revealed a small amount of a substance consistent with methamphetamine, according to the report.
