Cathy Lane of Rossville [no pic available] joins Terry Alan Whitt [left] and Whitney Roach [right], who were both named in connection to the alleged crime several days earlier. They all face sixteen charges of entering autos and two counts of car theft.

At last report they were jailed in Hamilton, TN (where they were apprehended) waiting extradition back to Walker County. A quick background check shows Whitt, at least, has previously spent time in prison for burglary.   Tiny Facebook
