A 33 year old man has been charged with theft of property over $1,000 as a result of an investigation by the DeKalb County Sheriff's Department.
Ryan K. Martin of Forrest Avenue, Smithville was arrested Saturday after the DeKalb County Sheriff's Department received a tip that Martin had possession of a stolen four wheeler at his residence.
Detectives went to Martin's home but found only one four wheeler, which Martin owned. After conducting several interviews with other people and then determining that the stolen four wheeler had been moved prior to their arrival at Martin's home, detectives went to a residence where Martin formerly resided on Joe Tittsworth Street and found two- four wheelers, both of which were stolen. One of the four wheelers had been stolen from Holiday Haven last weekend and the other four wheeler was stolen on October 28th from Hazzard, Kentucky.
Sheriff Ray says Martin admitted to having possession of both of the stolen four wheelers so he was arrested and charged in the case. His bond is set at $10,000 and his court date is December 6th.
