3 CHARGED AFTER THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS IN ITEMS STOLEN

Three people have been charged in connection with the theft of thousands of dollars worth of tools and hunting equipment from a Grant area residence.

The investigation began when sheriff’s department Deputy Matt Bush was dispatched to a residence located on Opossum Hollow Road, Sunday, where a man reported someone had cut the locks on two storage buildings and items estimated to cost approximately $40,000 were missing.

According to Deputy Bush’s offense report, a neighbor contacted the victim (individual who had reported the items stolen) asking him if he could fix a bow and cut some arrows, saying he had purchased them at a yard sale.

When the neighbor brought the items by for repair, the victim recognized “the bow as belonging to him along with some arrows and other items which the neighbor had in his possession”, according to the deputy’s report.

The neighbor agreed to give the items back to the victim, according to the report.
