Two Arrested in Nations Creek Car Theft

During the morning hours of March 1, 2017, Jackson County Sheriff’s Office deputies located a stolen vehicle on Redwing Vista in the Piney Mountain Community of Jackson County.  The vehicle was recently stolen from a home in the Nations Creek area, along with multiple other items, including  multiple firearms.  Upon locating the stolen vehicle in a driveway on Redwing Vista, deputies attempted to make contact with the residents inside the home.  No contact was made but the deputies were able to tell several people were inside the residence.  With the potential for the stolen firearms being inside the home, the Sheriff’s Office Emergency Tactical Team responded to the home and were assisted by the Cherokee Indian Police Tactical Team.  Safe entry was made into the home subsequent to a search warrant.  During the search, multiple stolen firearms were seized as well as other stolen property.  Two suspects were taken into custody.  One remains unserved at this time.   Charged are:
