A local man, 27 year old Craig Mitchell Feazell, of Jacksboro, and 33 year old Anica Marie Santiago, of Lexington, KY were apprehended yesterday afternoon after Jacksboro police chased their gray SUV from the Walmart area to Towe String road and Mt Paran after the woman attempted to cash a stolen check at Home Federal Bank. The chase ended when the car drove into a field. JPD Chief Jeremy Goins managed to block the suspect vehicle with his cruiser, which the driver backed into trying to flee. The cruiser sustained damage but no one was injured.
Santiago had allegedly passed a stolen check a week before at the same location and also made a sizable withdrawal. JPD Detective Cody Chapman had asked the bank to call if the woman returned with another check. She did and that’s when JPD responded, catching up with the pair at the Walmart area.
The pair are suspected, along with possibly others, in similar robberies in parks around the state. The pair face a variety of charges involving theft, forgery, reckless driving, felony evading and will also possibly face charges from other jurisdictions, including Cumberland Gap National Park.
