Burglary suspect Todd facing multiple charges


Knoxville —

• Count 7-Theft in the Third Degree: This is related to the theft of items from one of the vehicles at Cobblestone.

• Count 8-Criminal Mischief in the Third Degree: This charges stems from the $500 damage to the window at Kline's, used to gain access.

• Count 9-Criminal Mischief in the Third Degree: Todd is facing this charge for allegedly causing $600 damage to the truck at Cobblestone.

• Count 10-Theft in the Fourth Degree: This charge was filed for the theft of $350 worth of items from Kline's. 

• Count 11-Criminal Mischief in the Fourth Degree: Todd is accused of this be cause of damage done at Skull Duggery. This includes $300 damage to doors and $100 for a damaged cash register cord. 

In an interview with the Journal-Express Sunday night, Sandholdt indicated that the investigation is ongoing and more charges are likely to be filed. He is thrilled with what has been accomplished thus far and grateful for the cooperative effort among several agencies to try to solve these crimes. 

Sandholdt added that the capture of, and allegations against Todd, do not account for all of the recent burglary activity in Marion County. There are still active investigations going on, more suspects at large and proper precautions should continue to be taken by the public. 

"I'm still after the other ones, too," Sandholdt said. "I want them all." 

In regard to Todd, Sandholdt stated in a press release, “I want to relay my gratitude to all of the citizens who provided information on possible suspects, the media who help spread the word about various leads, and the many agencies and officers who spent countless hours following up on those leads.  This truly was solved by a team approach.  When observant citizens take note of suspicious vehicles and people, take note of descriptions and license plate numbers, and call law enforcement with this information, they are helping keep our communities safe.”

Todd is scheduled to appear in court on Friday, Dec. 27, at 9:30 a.m. We will have the latest on this case in the Dec. 27 print edition of the Journal-Express, and will provide any more information received on Friday here at
