SEVIER COUNTY, Tenn. — A Sevier County man was taken into custody following a multi-county chase.
The Sevier County Sheriff's Office arrested 29-year-old Jordan Lynn James of Sevierville, saying he is suspected in an armed robbery that took place at the Cash Express in Seymour Tuesday.

Officers then pursued the vehicle which led them into Knox County, where the Knox County Sheriff's Office and the Tennessee Highway Patrol assisted in the chase.
The SCSO said the vehicle was eventually stopped on Chapman Highway near the Colonial Village area.
Officers said the James was taken into custody without further incident and transported to the Sevier County Sheriff's Office. The investigation is ongoing.
