Authorities finally caught up with a LaFollette man wanted for burglary and theft among other charges.

On May 29 LaFollette Police Officer Stephen Wallen responded to the report of a domestic dispute at a South 8th Street address.

At the scene victims told Wallen while they were sleeping Homer Samuel Ivey, 41, of 1036 Glade Springs Road, kicked open the front door causing damage to the door, lock and door jamb.

Upon entering the house, Ivey allegedly went to the bedroom where the victims were sleeping and assaulted both with blows to the head and body.

After assaulting the two victims Ivey then took $86 in cash.

Ivey was picked up by LaFollette Police last Friday on the outstanding warrant.  He is charged with domestic assault, simple assault, burglary, theft under $500 and vandalism under $500.  He is scheduled to appear in court on July 10.
