  • OFFICER DOWN - Police Officer Kenny Moats of the Maryville Police Department, Tennessee End of Watch: Thursday, August 25, 2016 Police Officer Kenny Moats was shot and killed after responding to a domestic violence call at a home near the intersection of Kerrway Lane and Alcoa Trail at approximately 4:00 pm. Patrol units had responded to the home earlier in the day for a domestic dispute. Patrol units were sent to the address a second time when another call was received by dispatchers stating one of the subjects was now armed. Officer Moats and a second narcotics detective who happened to be in the area responded to the scene to assist patrol units. They parked their vehicle approximately 70 yards from the residence and assisted one person from the home before taking cover behind their car. As they waited for patrol units to arrive the subject opened fire from a garage, striking Officer Moats in the neck. The other detective as well as a responding Blount County sheriff's deputy were able to return fire before taking the subject into custody. Officer Moats had served with the Maryville Police Department for nine years and was assigned to the Fifth Judicial District Drug Task Force. He is survived by his wife and three children. #gilmersheriff

  • Gilmer County Sheriff's Office feeling sad.

    It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Deputy Lee Charles. Deputy Charles, or Lee as most all referred to him, was a 16-year employee of the Gilmer County Sheriff's Office. He spent the last 10 years of his life greeting everyone who walked through the front doors of the Courthouse. Due to his great upbeat and even funny demeanor, he became no doubt one of the favorite employees of the Sheriff's Office. During his recent absence, at least 2 or 3 times a day, someone would ask me or my deputies, "Where is Lee?" Or "How is Lee doing?" He is most definitely going to be missed by his co-workers and all the visitors of the courthouse who had become acquainted with him. Deputy Charles fought a long time and ultimately lost his battle with cancer today. He is survived by a daughter and his long-time companion, Heidi. Please keep them, as well as all the staff of not only the Sheriff's Office but the entire Courthouse, in your thoughts and prayers! -Sheriff Stacy Nicholson #gilmersheriff
