Former Tennessee cop arrested in Central America after 10 years
SWEETWATER, Tennessee (WDEF) – The TBI has announced they have captured a police officer they have been hunting for more than a decade now.
In September of 2007, they were called in to investigate missing money from the Sweetwater Police Department evidence room.
They developed Officer Christopher A. Greene as their suspect for the theft.
But he skipped town.
Agents eventually learned that he had fled the country for Central America.
More than ten years later, he was spotted in Panama last week.
Greene was picked up by the U.S. Marshals Service and returned to Monroe County on Friday.
