Campbell Co. man arrested for invading elderly couple's home

Posted:

LAFOLLETTE (WATE) - A Campbell County man was arrested Wednesday night after breaking into an elderly couple's home with a tomahawk and stealing several items.

Officials say they received a 911 call just after 7 p.m. from a home on the 1100 block of Duff Road. The phone was left off the hook, allowing dispatchers to hear the entire home invasion.

Deputies say a man entered the home carrying a tomahawk, saying the a man living there owed him money.

Chief Deputy Aaron Evans says an elderly woman had just moved into the home about three weeks ago.

The invader threatened the man and woman, then took jewelry, cash and prescription medication.

Evidence led detectives to Larry Satterfield, 29, of LaFollette. Detectives were able to track him to a home on Sled Creek Road where he was placed under arrest on an outstanding warrant.

Deputies say he was extremely intoxicated and unable to pose for a mugshot.

Detectives were able to recover the cash and jewelry, but say Satterfield flushed any medication he had not already taken.

Satterfield faces multiple charges and is currently in the county jail awaiting charges.
