Cody Estepp
SULLIVAN COUNTY, Tenn. -

A Kingsport man has been arrested and charged in connection with several home burglaries on Hood Road.

The Sullivan County Sheriff's Office says one of those burglaries happened Tuesday, July 9.

When officers arrived, the homeowner told them he found his blinds opened, when he left them closed. The homeowner says a man had broken into his home before, and he was concerned he may be inside again.

Officers say they found Cody Estepp hiding in the home. They say when they tried to arrest him, Estepp resisted and tried to hit one of the officers with a golf club.

Estepp was eventually arrested and is now charged in three other burglaries as well.

His charges include aggravated assault, resisting arrest, aggravated burglary and theft.
