Man wanted on charges here gets wake-up call in Tennessee

LAVERGNE, Tenn. — A man being sought on 17 charges in connection with the theft and use of a debit card in Pulaski County June 5 has been arrested in Tennessee.
First Sgt. Mike Honaker of the Virginia State Police office in Dublin said Kenneth Earl Roberson of 317 Church St. in Westwego, La., was arrested in Lavergne, Tenn., which is a suburb of Nashville.
Roberson was arrested by the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force and the Tennessee Highway Patrol just after 8 a.m. Eastern Time.
Honaker said Roberson faces 16 felonies and one misdemeanor in connection with the Virginia case and one count of malicious wounding in Tennessee.
He is being held without bond in a Nashville jail pending extradition proceedings to return him to Virginia.
Trooper D. M. Reece of the Virginia State Police initiated the local investigation June 10 after the victim realized that his debit card was missing and was being used without his authorization.
Roberson was identified as a suspect in the case through various surveillance photographs, according to Honaker.
Further investigation revealed that Roberson allegedly has extensive criminal histories in at least six other states, he added.
“We had received a tip that Roberson was in Tennessee so we had requested the assistance of the United States Marshals Service to locate Roberson since we believed he had left Virginia and was in an adjacent state,” said Honaker. “Members of the U.S. Marshals Service and the Tennessee Highway Patrol were able to track Roberson through the use of his cell phone and financial transactions to a residence where he was staying.”
Honaker said, “At about 7:05 Central Time, the marshals and troopers gave Roberson a wake-up call at his girlfriend’s home in Lavergne, Tennessee.”
“This was a great piece of police work by our counterparts in Tennessee, and we are very grateful for their hard work and dedication in this case,” Honaker said.
