The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office is conducting an investigation into allegations that a registered sex offender, 55-year-old Jerry Lynn Davenport, of Tennessee Stone Road in Crossville had obtained money from various victims by fraudulent means. Sheriff’s Investigators were made aware of the multiple incidents by posts on social media. Several charges are pending in this investigation and additional information will be released when it becomes available. The sheriff’s department says residents in Cumberland County are among the most generous people anywhere and have a desire to help those that are in need. Deputies say please use caution when approached by individuals requesting money and be diligent in whom you choose to give to. Don’t be pressured into giving to people who you don’t know. You may be scammed out of your money but it could be dangerous as well.
