Tennessee Prosecuter's Son is 1 of 4 in Home Invasion Charges


Clarksville police have arrested four suspects, including a state prosecutor's adult son, in a home invasion robbery. The Clarksville Leaf-Chronicle reports John Wesley Carney III was booked into the Montgomery County Jail Friday, charged with robbery and kidnapping. He is the son of 19th Judicial District Attorney General John Wesley Carney Jr. The 27-year-old Carney is the final of four men arrested in a Thursday afternoon robbery that caused the temporary lockdown of an elementary school. Clarksville police say four men forced their way into the victim's apartment, bound him with duck tape and threatened him with a knife over money and weapons. Authorities say the victim complied out of fear for himself and his two young children.
