A Robertson County Grand Jury returned 10 indictments – nine for theft and one for forgery – against Amanda Collins Morrison, 38, a co-owner of Superior Paint & Body, 3366 Hwy 41 South in Springfield, in November. Amanda Morrison's husband, Melvin Jody Morrison, 41, was also indicted on one count of theft and one count of forgery in connection to the case. The couple was arrested on Nov. 26 and later released from the Robertson County Jail on $15,000 bond. Amanda Morrison has been working at Superior Paint & Body since her release. She has referred all questions about the case to her attorney, Patrick Frogge, who released a short statement on her behalf last month. "We look forward to court," he said. "We look forward to contesting the charges and she's not guilty. Problems for the Morrisons began at the end of October when Superior Automotive, a car lot that used to operate on the same site as their paint and body shop, closed about four months after it opened, according to Springfield Police Detective... Through the car lot, Amanda Morrison would post car ads on Craigslist, attracting buyers from Tennessee and surrounding states, Bogle said. Amanda Morrison would sell the vehicles, usually for cash, and pocket the money instead of paying off the auction houses that still held the titles for the vehicles, the detective explained. "Our victims have a piece of paper saying they bought a car," Bogle said. "But, technically, the auction house still owns the car. So far, Bogle has learned that Superior Automotive obtained the vehicles for sale on its lot through eight different auction houses, mostly in Tennessee and Kentucky, he said. "It's the biggest scam I've ever seen in 15 years at the police department," Bogle said. "Every time my phone rings, when I pass a car on the street. Source: www.tennessean.com
With Kori Kutsch dishing the ball out rapidly and judiciously and an array of hitters more than ready to deliver, the South Torrance girls volleyball team overwhelmed North Torrance during a 25-15, 25-16, 25-22 Pioneer League victory on Thursday... South (15-6, 6-0) and North (15-3, 4-1) have split in league play the last two years. Last season North won at South and the South won at North, so winning at home is a big step toward a possible sweep and an outright league crown. “If we continue to pass and play defense, if we’re in our system, we’re difficult to stop,” South coach Robert Kutsch said. Karly Eastley led South with 15 kills and five aces and added nine digs. Eastley delivered the winning kill in each set. Gina Cortesi had 12 kills, including no errors, and Myca Steffey-Bean added seven kills for South. Kutsch finished with 46 assists. “We have not played a team as fast as them, their sets are really fast and we weren’t ready for it,” North coach Brooke Soon said. North had a lead as late as 14-13 in the third sets. The Saxons pulled within 23-21 after a pair of aces by Sabryn Roberts. But Eastley’s kill off Kutsch’s set put the match away. “We had production from our middles, our opposite, Kori had a couple of dunks for kills, it’s hard to stop when it’s coming from all over the court,” Robert Kutsch said. When North was close in the first set, Bailey Oliver had a big block on Roberts, which set South on a 10-3 run. North was as close as 14-12 in the second set before an ace by Taylor Brydon helped South pull away. “The girls have been looking forward to this game for a while and came out focused,” Kutsch said. Roberts had 12 kills and five aces, Makayla Bradford had 12 digs and Keily Morimoto had 17 assists. Morimoto dodged a chair to make a lunging save that led to a Roberts kill and pulled North within 18-17 in the third set, but it wasn’t enough. Source: www.dailybreeze.com
