Arrest Reports



Murphy, NC— Cherokee County Sheriff Derrick Palmer announced the August 04TH, 2015 arrest of 45 year old Charmell Nita Mealer of Farner Tennessee for Felony Stalking.

On July 17th, 2015 the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office received a complaint from a resident in the Hiwassee Dam Community of Cherokee County that Mealer had entered the property and had damaged items while remaining against a current court order.

Upon conducting an investigation the assigned detective found that there had been previous complaints involving Mealer and that in fact a current No Contact Order was in place prohibiting Mealer from being on the property. Additionally the detective confirmed the damage that Mealer had committed while on the property which was disabling security cameras at the victim’s residence.

Mealer was arrested and taken before the Magistrate who set a $2,000.00 secure bond. Mealer is currently detained in the Cherokee County Detention Center pending a August 19th, 2015 Cherokee County District Court date.

Sheriff Palmer stated “This was some good old fashioned investigative work and I commend the investigator in pursuing the leads and bringing this case to justice so quickly. We know this type of case has the propensity to be very volatile.”

Sheriff Palmer encourages any one that has information to report it. To report crime in Cherokee County you can call the anonymous tip line at 828-837-1344 or email a tip at [email protected] or call 911 if you observe a crime in progress.
