It all began with a mother’s call to the Haywood County Sheriff’s Department in Brownsville, Tenn., last Wednesday night.
The unidentified woman told authorities her daughter had just acted as the driver for a planned burglary across the county line in Crockett County that was abandoned when two neo-Nazi skinheads chickened out at the sight of dogs, Haywood County Sheriff Melvin Bond said this morning.
The getaway-driver daughter is the girlfriend of Daniel Cowart, 20, of Bells, Tenn. Cowart and Paul Schlesselman, 18, of West Helena, Ark., are in custody charged with possession of a sawed-off shotgun, conspiracy to rob a federal firearms licensee, and making threats against a major candidate for president.
“This particular young lady is in fear of her life now, bless her heart,” said Bond.
