Local Bailbondmen Find Fugitive Living in Camper

A Greene County man who had fled the state after failing to appear in General Sessions Court to face multiple charges in May was returned to Greene County on Thursday after being captured by a local bail bondsman in Michigan.

Kerry Emmett, of Express Bail Bonds, said he and two of his employees found Sammy W. Roark, 57, of 1294 Mt. Zion Road, living in a camper behind a detail shop in Port Huron, Mich., about 7:30 a.m. Thursday.

"It was about 7:30 p.m. when we got back to Greeneville," Emmett said. "It's a 660-mile drive one way."

Emmett said his firm had posted a $7,000 bond for Roark after he was arrested in March.
