A registered sex offender was arrested by Murfreesboro Police for illegally possessing a weapon. Officers assisted the Tennessee Department of Corrections with a visit to the home of Jessie Robert Scruggs. Once at the home, police say they found a loaded shotgun.

68-Year old Scruggs is on the sex offender registry for a aggravated sexual battery conviction in 1982.
