After 10 Years on Run Tennessee Cop Captured in Panama

SWEETWATER, Tenn. – After being on the run for 10 years, a man wanted by authorities was captured in Panama.

Agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation began investigating the theft of money from the evidence room at the Sweetwater Police Department in September 2007.

During the course of the investigation, agents developed information that Christopher Greene, who was an officer at the time, was responsible for the theft.

A grand jury returned an indictment charging him with one count of theft over $10,000 in April 2008.

While attempting to locate Greene, agents later developed information he had left the country and was possibly living in Central America.

Last week, Green was located in Panama. Authorities alerted the U.S. Marshals Service, and Green was returned to the U.S. last Friday.

He has since been booked into the Monroe County jail on a $100,000 bond.
