Metro/Moore Sheriff Mark Logan, Investigator Mike Rainey and Chief Deputy Robin Holt were recognized by FBI Agent David Street for their help capturing to murder suspects during a nationwide man hunt.

Metro/Moore Sheriff Mark Logan was recognized along with Investigation Mike Rainey and Chief Deputy Robin Holt. FBI Agent David Street made the presentation at Monday night’s Council. Street said, “On Tuesday, June 13, 2017 two Putnum County, Georgia corrections deputies were killed by two inmates who were being transported to a new facility. After the murders, the two inmates escaped and a nationwide man hunt ensued,” “In a little over 48 hours after the original incident the man hunt made its way to southern middle Tennessee area, which included Moore County,” “The two fugitives abandoned a pickup truck stolen from Georgia and a short time later stole a second vehicle here in Moore County. After a home invasion, a kidnapping, and a vehicle pursuit, in which shots were fired at law enforcement, the two were captured in rural Rutherford County. After their arrest one of the fugitives described an area where the stolen truck had been hidden and abandoned,” “A TBI agent contacted Moore County Investigator, Mike Rainey who immediately began assisting with the investigation. With information provided to the FBI and relayed to Investigator Rainey the stolen truck was found covered with debris in a heavily wooded area of Moore County. Investigator Rainey and Chief Deputy, Robin Holt carefully photographed and assisted with the recovery and removal of the truck,” “Sheriff Logan was contacted and did not hesitate when asked by the FBI to store the truck in a secure facility. Sheriff Logan had the truck placed in a locked, temperature controlled facility and his agency guarded the truck until it could be processed by the FBI evidence response team,” “The Knoxville Division, Special Agent Charge, Renee McDerman who is traveling or she would have come down here tonight; would like to recognize Sheriff Logan and his staff for their outstanding work and cooperation during that highly stressful and critical investigation,” “Those guys were transported back and I will tell you that in my 28 years of law enforcement; especially on the Federal side, typically we get calls from local and state agencies all the time to assist them, but it is always good when the FBI can call the Sheriff or one of his investigators and get help at the drop of the hat on just a phone call and that speaks a lot for the Sheriff and his staff,” Street concluded. Mr. Street then presented a letter from the SAC as a letter of thank you to the Sheriff and Mr. Street also presented Logan with three rare SAC FBI coins; Street stated he didn’t even have one. Street asked Sheriff Logan to present Investigator Rainey and Chief Deputy Robin Holt, each with a coin. Mr. Street thanked the Sheriff for his help in this situation, stating he knew it was difficult and was transposed to several different counties; that speaks a lot for the Sheriff and what he did for the FBI. Sheriff Logan thanked Street and stated from the Federal side all the way down was a very cooperative effort to stop some bad people.
