Sunday morning was full of activity for Laurel Sheriff’s Deputy Daniel Grigsby, making two arrests in less than two hours.

David E. Jones, 25, of Cane Creek Road in London, was arrested at 7:15 a.m. on Branch Road, six miles north of London, on charges of theft by unlawful taking. The theft allegedly was from Jones’ own mother. But through an anonymous tip, Grigsby found Jones hiding in a truck behind the Branch Road residence.

Just before 10 a.m., Grigsby placed 33-year-old Timothy W. Reynolds of Briscoe Drive in Gray under arrest for failing to appear for a court date in Knox County. Reynolds had been charged with trafficking in methamphetamine.

Reynolds was arrested on Clark Lane, when he showed up to allegedly claim some property there, and while Grigsby was investigating a possible domestic violence complaint. Although Reynolds allegedly wanted his property, a check revealed that Reynolds himself was wanted.

Deputy Mikey Ashurst assisted on the complaint and arrest.

Both Jones and Reynolds were taken to the Laurel Detention Center after their arrests.
