A resident of Madison Street in Manchester has been arrested and charged with the theft of a utility trailer from Tullahoma.
Anthony Tyrone Dalton, 39, was arrested July 29 on a charge of theft of property over $1,000.
Dalton’s arrest was made by Coffee County Sheriff’s Investigator James Sherrill after the investigator learned that he had been attempting to sell a lawn mower and trailer.
The investigator learned that Dalton had traded the mower and trailer for a Camaro to a resident of Charlie Crosslin Road. Sherrill along with Investigator Kerry Farrar went to the residence on Crosslin Road and located the trailer and mower.
Investigators Sherrill, Farrar and Billy Marcom went to Dalton’s residence and spoke with him about the trailer and mower but he told the officers that he knew nothing about the mower and trailer. Dalton claimed that he had purchased the Camaro for $800. He was arrested by the officers.
Sherrill then realized that a tool box on the back of Anthony’s truck had allegedly been stolen.
After speaking with the Tullahoma resident who the trailer and mower had been stolen from, officers recovered two shovels, post hole diggers and a pick. Sherrill states that a mower and weed eater that were taken are still missing.
Dalton is scheduled to appear in Coffee County General Sessions Court Aug. 13. (Thanks to Wayne Thomas with the Tullahoma News for his help with this story)
