Two suspects that officers have been looking for over the past several months were arrested at the same residence two days apart.
Deputies Houston Burke and Matthew Sandefur were attempting to serve papers at 439 Moody Hill Road on Thursday when a truck that was sitting at the edge of the driveway backed up the driveway and the passenger got out and ran.
The officers followed the truck and asked the driver who was in the passenger seat. After a few minutes of talking to the driver, they were able to confirm that it was Jeff Adcock.
The officers confirmed they had a warrant for his arrest.
Adcock was arrested at the residence on a Violation of Probation warrant.
On Friday, the officers returned to the residence in an attempt to serve the papers they had went to serve on Thursday.
“We thought maybe on day two we could get the papers served,” Deputy Burke said, “But when we got there it didn’t turn out that way.”
Deputy Sandefur visually identified a male standing outside as Ray Christopher Mason. Mason had been running from law enforcement for several warrants from 2008.
Mason turned and ran inside the home.
While the officers guarded both doors, the Mason attempted to crawl out of a window to get away.
“We were able to get inside the house and arrest him,” Burke said, “He was arrested on fifteen charges.”
Those charges include evading arrest, possession of schedule II, III and IV for resale, possession of drug paraphernalia, violation of probation warrant, seven counts of theft and forgery, destruction of evidence and introduction into a penal facility.
While transporting Mason to the Claiborne County Jail, the officers had to stop and make him spit out a number of pills he was attempting to chew and swallow. While being booked in at the jail, corrections officers discovered he was chewing on at least 14 pills.
Mason was taken to the Claiborne County ER for the medication then taken back to the jail. He has a bond of $25,000 secure bond and has a hold on him from Union County.
Adcock was bonded out on a $1,000 secure bond.
