On Saturday just prior to midnight the Centre Police Department was dispatched to a report of a wreck at the intersection of East Main Street and Cedar Bluff Road.
That wreck involved a single vehicle with property damage resulting, and when units arrived there was no driver found in the area. Sheriff’s Office Deputies assisted Centre Police in locating the driver of that vehicle in the surrounding area, after a 9-1-1 call was made regarding a burglary in progress at a residence on South River Street. The occupants of the residence were alarmed as they heard banging at the back door and an occupant of the residence went to check, and saw a male subject who began to use physical force to gain entry into the home.
The occupants were able to escape without injury, and they quickly called 9-1-1. Centre Police and members of the Sheriff’s Office arrived, and discovered the suspect inside the home, where he was soon taken into custody and was identified as 19 year old Kobie Everette Allen Bray of Centre. Afterwards he was taken to the County jail for processing. Centre Police Department investigators went to the scene of the disturbance where it was also established that Bray was the driver of the vehicle which wrecked moments before.
Bray was charged with leaving the scene of an accident, burglary second degree, with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
