Sheriff's Dept. Recovers 4-Wheelers

Several reported stolen four-wheelers and a couple of motorcycles were recovered on Thursday, Sept. 2 after an investigation by the Overton County Sheriff's Department.

A search warrant was executed by Capt. James D. Harris and other members of the Sheriff's Dept., with assistance from Troy Human, an agent with CID, at an Upper Hilham Road residence last Thursday. Parts of stolen four-wheelers were allegedly found at the residence, along with the keys to stolen four-wheelers. A 1984 Pontiac Trans Am was seized in the case as being used to transport stolen property, and four-wheelers and motorcycles with alleged stolen parts were seized.

During investigation of stolen four-wheelers, a Yamaha Warrior was found stripped in a barn on the Overton-Clay County line, and other parts were located in several different places across the county, according to the Sheriff's Dept.

So far, four suspects have been identified in the investigation, one is an adult and the other three are juveniles. The case against the adult will be presented during the next session of the Overton County Grand Jury, and the juveniles will be taken to the next Juvenile Court.

The case is still under investigation by Capt. Harris.
