New Yorkers arrested in Jefferson County
Two New York residents who allegedly carjacked a vehicle from Knox County on February 11, were taken into custody a short time later following a pursuit into Jefferson County. Sunnia Ann Carberry, 33 allegedly grabbed the keys from a 65 year-old man as he was inside the Wendy's Restaurant on Strawberry Plains Pike. The victim chased Carberry outside where he was stabbed in the ribs. Carberry and Alexis Burgos, 37, entered I-40 eastbound, pursued by officers with the Tennessee Highway Patrol. Jefferson County Sheriff GW "Bud" McCoig said the couple abandoned the car just west of the I-81 split, and ran into a wooded area. A Jefferson County deputy located the couple a short time later as they waked along a nearby road, and took them into custody. Now Carberry is being held by Knox County authorities on charges of aggravated robbery, felony theft and evading arrest. Burgos is being held in Jefferson County on charges of felony evading arrest, reckless endangerment, resisting arrest and possession of drug paraphernalia. According to Sheriff McCoig additional charges are pending.
