Chief Deputy Talley and an agent from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation responded to an address in an effort to apprehend a wanted subject. When the officers arrived at the home, they were met by the suspect's, father who told them that the suspect was not at home. The father allowed the officers to search his home.

The fugitive they were searching for was not present.
