Brandi Bertram called police on August 31st to report that her (soon to be ex) husband, 39-year-old James Bertram, had texted her approximately 20 times throughout the day and called her twice during her workday at The Youth Academy – Sango, despite requests to stop. One of the texts stated, “I know you have your watch on,” and demanded a reply. When he received no responses, he went to her workplace and took photographs of her building and sent them to her while stating, “it’s going to be a long few days.”
Police say 18-year-old Damon Perry entered a BMW parked at a residence on Clydesdale Drive near exit 11 in Sango. He reportedly took a Vera Bradley wallet, a Tennessee driver’s license, and various other cards from the victim’s vehicle. He told police during an interview that 19-year-old Amarion Caudle had been with him, and they were burglarizing vehicles together that night, “car hopping” through neighborhoods.
A few blocks away, the pair also entered a vehicle on Mountain Way, and during this incident, Perry acted as the lookout while Caudle stole various items from a vehicle. This incident was captured on a security camera.
28-year-old Nefertiti Jones was jailed on January 28th on an outstanding warrant from a January 2nd shoplifting incident at the Madison Street Walmart.

She was taken into custody on this charge as police served an outstanding violation of probation warrant which was drug-related on the same day.
