Two men were arrested early Thursday morning after they were allegedly spotted hunting on land they weren't supposed to be on and driving around with suspected methamphetamine.

Monroe County Sheriff's Deputy Derrick Graves said it was around 7 a.m. when he went to Craighead Road on a call that two men had been spotted loading a dead deer in to their truck.

The men were gone when Graves arrived on the scene, but fellow Deputy Ray Haynes found the truck driving on Old Christianburg Road and pulled it over.

The two men in the truck, Douglas Wesley Hutchison and Brian Austin Presley, admitted they had retrieved the deer from the field, but hadn't been the ones to shoot it. They gave Haynes permission to search the truck and he allegedly found a Winchester bullet lying between the passenger and driver seat, but didn't find a weapon.

Graves said he talked with the property owners, who had spotted the truck and was told one of the had heard a gunshot and when she got up to see what was going on, she saw the truck drive through the area several times.

MADISONVILLE-A Sweetwater area man will be on probation for a long time after he stole electricity, endangering the lives of service people in the process.

James Eric Hamm, 37, Hiwassee Road, pleaded guilty to stealing electricity from Fort Loudoun Electric Cooperative in Monroe County Criminal Court last week. Hamm stole $1,153 worth of power between January-April of 2013, for which he received six years on probation.

Stealing electricity isn’t an unknown crime in this area, but Hamm also received an additional two years on probation for vandalizing equipment belonging to Fort Loudoun. The indictment against Hamm said this could have endangered any Fort Loudoun employee who attempted to work on the equipment.

Hamm also received eight years probation for initiating the process to manufacture methamphetamine, giving him a total of 16 years on probation. He will also have to pay for the power he stole and the equipment he damaged.
