Last week Chief Deputy Mike Rainey with Moore County Sheriff’s Office received a call from a female at an address on Dale Haven Drive in Tullahoma advising she had recovered a bag of coins and jewelry she believed to be stolen. Rainey went to the residence and recovered the property. The next day Rainey called Coffee County authorities advising that some of the jewelry was believed to be stolen out of Coffee County. Upon further investigation 3 burglaries were solved out of Coffee County one being from Prairie Plains road Hillsboro, one being from Keele road in Manchester, and one being from Gowen road in Manchester.
The call to police came from the sister of David Zwarton, 34, of Tullahoma. Zwarton is already facing charges in other area counties and will now face several charges in Coffee County.
This all stemmed from a dog pulling the bag of jewelry and coins out from under a rock in the back yard of David Zwarton’s sister’s residence and some children coming in the house saying they had found treasure.
