An investigation by special agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, the Sweetwater Police Department, and the coordinated intelligence efforts of multiple other agencies has resulted in the arrest of a fugitive who has eluded capture for the last decade.

In September 2007, at the request of former 10th District Attorney General Steve Bebb, TBI special agents began investigating the theft of money from the evidence room at the Sweetwater Police Department. During the course of the investigation, agents developed information that Christopher A. Greene, who was employed as an officer at the time, was responsible for the theft.               

In April 2008, a Monroe County Grand Jury returned an indictment charging Greene with one count of Theft over $10,000. While attempting to locate Greene, agents developed information that he had left the country and was possibly living in Central America.

Last week, authorities in Panama located Christopher Greene, 55, and alerted the U.S. Marshals Service. On Friday, Greene was returned to the United States and transported back to Tennessee by deputies with the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office. He was subsequently booked into the Monroe County Jail on a $100,000 bond.
