MOST WANTED ROUNDUP: arrests continue days after broadcast

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON CO./SULLIVAN CO., TN (WJHL) -

So far,  ten suspects have been arrested thanks to viewer tips during News Channel 11's 90-minute blitz to get crime off the streets. Washington County and the Sullivan County Sheriff’s office took part in the roundup Monday evening. 

Vance Light was taken into custody by the Washington County Sheriff’s Office Tuesday afternoon. In addition, three people were also charged as accessories after the fact for helping him.

Billy Gill was arrested Monday  in Johnson City right after our 6:00 p.m. broadcast.  Deputies say they have been looking for Gill for quite some time. 

Jeremiah Bell, a suspect who wasn't featured, was arrested at a location on South Roan Street in Johnson City. 

The Sullivan County Sheriff's Office said the Monday's Most Wanted Roundup led to information on the location of Johnny Linebaugh.   He's in jail in Bledsoe County, so the SCSO will be able to take him into their custody once Bledsoe is released from that facility. 

The Sullivan County Sheriff's Office said Bradley Dakota White was arrested during the Monday's Most Wanted Roundup by he Kingsport Police Department. 

Deputies said someone called with a tip about Patrick Hale who was featured by the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office during a previous Monday's Most Wanted Roundup.   That tip led deputies straight to Hale where he was taken into custody Monday night. 

Another suspect, also named Patrick Hale, was arrested by deputies in Washington County, Tennessee.

Late Monday, the Washington County TN Sheriff's Office told News Channel 11 that Micheal Hylmon was arrested after a News Channel 11 viewer called 9-1-1.

During our last blitz, five suspects were apprehended. See: http://buff.ly/1gYiQlc.
