BLEDSOE COUNTY, Tenn. —
Officers in Bledsoe County have charged a paramedic with stealing a gun, after a repo man told police he pulled the stolen gun on him at his home Monday morning.
Sheriff Jimmy Morris tells NewsChannel 9 that Heath Phillips is now at the Bledsoe County Jail being booked.
Morris says Phillips pulled the gun on the repo man and the repo man called police. When police ran the serial number of the gun, they learned it had been stolen from a patient during a medical call from more than a year ago, in September, 2016.
Morris says Phillips will be charged with theft of property over $1,000 and reckless endangerment.
Bledsoe County Emergency Medical Services confirms to NewsChannel 9 that Phillips is no longer an employee as of today.
