2 men can't hunt for a year, must pay fines after being caught hunting at ammo plant

May 6, 2009

CHURCH HILL, Tenn. (AP) Two men who were caught hunting turkey on Holston Army Ammunition Plant property have received probation, but can't hunt for a year.

Security officers found 34-year-old Christopher Kevin Arnold of Church Hill and 45-year-old Brian Cox of Kingsport on the grounds of the plant April 15 after hearing two gunshots.

The Kingsport Times reported both were charged with criminal trespassing and hunting without permission. An officer found a dead turkey after the men left the grounds and were detained by Church Hill police.

Arnold and Cox agreed Tuesday to a plea that will erase the charges if they successfully complete six months of probation and pay fines and fees.

Their hunting licenses have been suspended for a year.
