One trip to jail apparently wasn’t enough for a Jacksboro man who was arrested twice in a week on unrelated incidents.

Granville Joseph Day, 20, of 187 School Street, Jacksboro, was arrested on Aug. 11 by Campbell County Sheriff’s Officer Jaymi Sammons for possession of schedule VI controlled substance and drug paraphernalia, according to the sheriff’s report.

On Aug. 11, Sammons was dispatched on the report of a suspicious person at a Caryville address. Upon arrival, Sammons found Day on the porch of a Caryville residence. Day allegedly stated to Sammons that ‘army guys’ were chasing him through the woods, according to the sheriff’s report.

Sammons then performed a search of Day and found two bags of green leafy substances and a small pipe. Day stated to Sammons that it was marijuana and it belonged to him, the sheriff’s report said. Day was arrested and charged for those offenses.

Not even a week later on Aug. 16, Day was arrested once again, this time by the Jacksboro Police Department.

Jacksboro Officer Daniel Terry was dispatched to a Jacksboro residence on the report of an alleged burglary. Upon arrival, Terry spoke with the alleged victim, who stated that Day had broken into his house while he was moving and stole several items, including jewelry, a game boy, DVD’s, medication and some cash, according to the Jacksboro Police Report.

The stolen items were returned to the victim, except one wedding band and the medication. Day was then placed under arrest, according to the report.

Day was charged with aggravated burglary and theft of property $500-$999. He is currently being held at the jail on $5,000 bond.

His court date is set for Aug. 21.
