KNOXVILLE – An investigation by Agents from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has resulted in the indictment of a Sevierville woman accused of misusing her position in the Sevier County Planning Office for her personal benefit.
At the request of 4th District Attorney General James Dunn, TBI Special Agents began investigating Brooke Denee Keyes on October 12th. During the course of the investigation, Agents developed information that Keyes, who worked as an Assistant Planner for Sevier County, kept money that was otherwise supposed to be deposited. Keyes subsequently resigned her position with the county.
On Monday, the Sevier County Grand Jury returned an indictment, charging the 37-year-old with one count of Theft over $1,000 and one count of Official Misconduct. Today, authorities arrested her and booked her into the Sevier County Jail on $5,000 bond.
