Kingsprot police: Man stole mother's purse
Sullivan County authorities have arrested a man after they tell us he stole his mother's purse.
It all started yesterday when officers responded to a theft call at Gaines Street in Kingsport.
Authorities say the suspect, James McClellan, fled the scene in a green van.
After a short car chase, authorities tell us McClellan drove back to the house and tried to get inside the home.
Authorities then sent a K-9 officer to contain McClellan.
He is being charged with theft, evading arrest, and reckless driving.
