Three Blount County residents charged with invading a Red Bank couple's home and beating them over the weekend were booked at the Hamilton County Jail on Monday night, officials said.
Early last week, one of three posed as a census worker at the Knollwood Drive residence, according to Red Bank police spokesman Sgt. Dan Knight. During the weekend the suspect returned with two others and invaded the house, Sgt. Knight said.
Steve Hannah, Misty Wilson and Brandie Brandon, all from Blount County, were brought to Hamilton County from Sevierville, Tenn., where they were arrested Monday.
They are charged with especially aggravated robbery, aggravated burglary, aggravated assault, aggravated kidnapping and theft over $1,000. Each is being held on $1.3 million bond, Sgt. Knight said.
According to Sgt. Knight, the three stole money, a laptop and other items.
"They ransacked the house," he said.
Sgt. Knight said the city's traffic cameras played a role in the eventual arrest. Knowing that the culprits drove a black Chevrolet Camaro, police obtained video from the Ashland Terrace cameras and ran the plates.
After spending the night in the hospital, the Red Bank woman has been treated and released.
The male victim suffered minor injuries at the scene, Sgt. Knight said.
