KNOXVILLE (WATE) -- A man who says the Johnia Berry murder suspect stole his credit card says he's relieved to know the man is behind bars.
Bob Avento said Taylor Olson broke into his car in 2004 and stole his credit card.
Avento learned that it was Olson after a tattoo parlor in Sevierville notified him Olson acted suspicious when he was asked for his driver's license.
Avento says Olson even called him several times offering money if he wouldn't go to police.
"He sounded very cold, just really calculated in his voice and it sounded like he had some issues," Avento said.
Avento said Olson charged more than $2,000 to his card.
Olson was charged with credit card theft in Sevier County, where he got the tattoo.
Olson is charged in a seven count indictment that includes felony murder, pre-meditated first degree murder, attempted first degree murder and aggravated burglary for the December 2004 stabbing death of Johnia Berry.
