Back Archive Move Delete Spam -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 10/7/14 Gary Dale Shults Sent rs To:Citizen Tribune ‎Oct‎ ‎07 at ‎11‎:‎22‎ ‎AM A Cocke County man who was being sought on state and federal chop shop charges, was picked up Friday in Sevier County. Gary Dale Shults, 41, Chavis Road, Cosby, had been sought since April on state charges, and a federal grand jury recently indicted him on charges of transport of a stolen vehicle, sale of a stolen vehicle and altering a vehicle identification number(vin). Officers with the Cocke County Sheriff's Office assisted by the Tennessee Highway Patrol Criminal Investigation Division, and a THP helicopter, went to the Shults property in April to arrest the defendant who had an outstanding warrant for failure to appear in court on charges of auto theft. Investigators determined at that time that dismantled fond on the property had previously been reported stolen; 2005 Chevrolet 2500 Duramax, had been reported stolen to the Knoxville Police Department in April, 2015, a 2005 GMC Yukon had been reported stolen to the Asheville Police Department in November, 2014 and a 2012 Lincoln MKZ was reported stolen to the Cocke County Sheriff's Office in July, 2015. The federal indictment alleges that between December, 2014 and February, 2016, the defendant allegedly transported a stolen 1997 GMC Sierra 1500 truck from North Carolina to Tennessee. And then removed the vin plate. The US Marshals Smoky Mountains Fugitive Task Force took Shults into custody, and he appeared later in the day for an initial appearance before US Magistrate Judge Clifton Corker.
