Rogersville residents reported that their landlord entered their trailer while no one was home, gathered their belongings and discarded them at the landfill. One of the victims reportedly located their possessions at the dump, but was not allowed to retrieve the items by employees. Police interviewed the landlord, who admitted to throwing the property away. He said the items were "junk" and of no value. A deputy was going to follow up on the renter's complaint and contact the landfill when they opened the next morning.

Police were alerted to an unresponsive female at a Bulls Gap residence. She was found semiconscious in a bed with pinpoint pupils and attempting to argue with her husband "over a dog." She was told multiple times to calm down, but refused, and was repeatedly ordered not to go outside due to her "current condition." She then told police she was exiting to smoke  and "doesn't care who likes it." On the porch she nearly fell over the railing and down the stairs, leading to her arrest for disorderly conduct.
