Charges against two men for multiple thefts will be presented to the January term of the Coffee County Grand Jury.
According to a report by sheriff’s investigator James Sherrill, the men are facing charges of six counts of theft of property over $1,000.
On Nov. 18 a trailer was reported stolen from Noah Road. A deputy taking a report informed the investigator that the resident on Noah Road had security video of the theft of a trailer from the residence. Sherrill and Investigator Kerry Farrar went to the residence and viewed the video and made a copy of it for their files.
The investigators were able to get a description of the vehicle being used by the thieves and a description of the two men taking the trailer.
The officers then located the men at a residence in the Lakewood Park area. After talking with the officers, the men admitted to taking a 4-wheeler on Noah Road and agreed to show them where they had taken trailers and four wheelers.
The men advised that they had taken a four wheeler from a residence on Jack Davis Road. But it fell off of a trailer on Ferrells Loop Road and they place it behind a vacant mobile home and recovered it the next day.
One of the men admitted to taking a trailer from a residence in Cannon County.
The investigators then spent Friday, Nov. 14 traveling to locations in Murfreesboro and Nashville working with police from each city and recovered the stolen trailers, tools and 4-wheelers. The men had sold the items to several other individuals for a lesser value than what they were worth.
Investigators have recovered several tools and a compressor that have not been reported stolen.
Because the men have not been charged with the thefts their names have not been released.
