Marlin arrest
A man arrested in Cocke County last week on drug charges now has been identified as a suspect in an Ohio murder. As the NewsSource reported last Thursday, Allen Szegedy, 43 of Ohio was arrested on a charge he possessed 6.3 ounces of suspected cocaine. Szegedy was placed in custody and on a check for weapons, Deputy Blake Cupp said $9,640.00 in cash was found in the front pocket of Szegedy. After further inspection of the vehicle, several small baggies consistent with the sale of cocaine were located, along with a money scanner, commonly used to identify counterfeit money. But Cocke County Sheriff Armando Fontes says further investigation by narcotics agents revealed Szegedy had provided a fake identification and was in fact, Kyron Edward Marlin. He was wanted in Cleveland, Ohio for Homicide and in Arlington, Washington DC for a federal parole violation for the Sale and Distribution of Heroin. Jail Administrator Josh Hartsell ordered fingerprints of the suspect, which positively confirmed him to be Marlin. U.S. Marshals will extradite Marlin back to Ohio on the homicide charge. Narcotics Agent Chuck Evans contacted the United States Attorney’s Office in Greeneville and will federally indict Marlin by an upcoming federal grand jury for the Possession with Intent to Distribute Cocaine in the Eastern District of Tennessee. Said Sheriff Fontes, "Thanks to the combined work of these officers a dangerous fugitive was apprehended. I am proud of the work these officers performed.“
