The Clarksville Leaf-Chronicle has recently reported on a number of alleged crimes in our area, including sexual assault and larceny.
A few days ago, a Clarksville man was taken into custody and charged with two counts of sexual assault and a single count of assault.
Law enforcement officials claim that the man raped a woman he knows around 1:30 in the morning. The man, 35, later assaulted her, they said.
He gave officials a Sewell Court address, according to the newspaper.
In a separate incident, police said that a video surveillance tape should help them find all suspects involved in a larceny case which took place at 84 Lumber. The men have been caught in the act of stealing lumber, equipment and trucks, which have the company logo on them, from the business.
The store also reported the loss of a chainsaw, forklift, blower and shingles, which totals more than $65,000. However, the forklift was located and recovered by police at a Nashville address.
In another case, a 31-year-old woman from Nashville has been arrested and charged with one count of fraud after she allegedly collected medical assistance benefits from TennCare. The District Attorney General will prosecute during the case.
Fraud connected with TennCare is a felony. If the suspect is convicted, she could face two years in prison.
A press release from the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office and the Office of Inspector General claimed that the suspect was not eligible for the benefits she reportedly applied for and received.
