UNICOI COUNTY, TN (WJHL) -

Unicoi County Sheriff Mike Hensley said his officers arrested four more people connected to the burglary of the Maple Grove Restaurant and the home invasion of the restaurant owner's residence.

Calvin Sams, Kevin Craig, Jameson Foster and Tyler Salyers were taken into custody on Friday. Deputies arrested two other suspects, Corey Livesay and Anthony James Davis, earlier this week.

Sheriff Hensley said investigators have determined that Foster and Salyers served as lookouts on the night of December 9. Foster was outside the restaurant when the victim left work, and called Livesay and Davis who were waiting at the victim's home.

The victim told officers she was confronted in her home on Pleasant Hill Road in Unicoi County by two men wearing ski masks.

The men used tape to restrain the woman and threatened to kill her and her if she did not open a safe in the home, Hensley said. When the woman was unable to open the safe, the men ran.

Sheriff Hensley told News Channel 11, Salyers served as a look out in a wooded area near the home. Foster stayed at the restaurant during the home invasion to keep an eye out the victim's husband.

Hensley said Foster picked up all the men after they fled the home.

Sams and Craig are charged with burglary and theft over $1,000.

Foster and Salyers are charged with aggravated kidnapping, aggravated assault, assault, and theft under $500 in connection to the home invasion.

Foster also faces charges of burglary and theft over $1,000 for the restaurant burglary.

    Dozens of drivers have filed complaints with the South Carolina Department of Transportation over loose gravel along a stretch of I-85. Officials said the complaints, which topped out at between 6 and 8 per day last week, stem from gravel that's damaged vehicles between Highway 14 and 129, where crews are working on a two-year-long resurfacing project.
