CHARLESTON, W.Va. - Deputies are asking for the public's help in locating a stolen tractor and a second Boone County man believed to have been involved in taking it.
Kanawha Deputy C.D. Lyons received a complaint on April 18 that a 1954 Massey-Ferguson tractor, appliances, electrical components and tree stand had been stolen from a hunting camp in the Kelley's Creek area of eastern Kanawha County.
Lyons received a tip the next day that the tractor was on U.S. 60 near R.J. Recycling in Glasgow, Cpl. Brian Humphreys said in a statement. Deputies went to look but the tractor was gone. Humphreys said it's likely the tractor was sold along the road.
Lyons learned that the suspects, identified as Anthony Scott Jenkins, 31, and Joseph Williams, 30, both of Whitesville, had tried to sell the tractor at the recycling center but the business refused to take it.
A Whitesville police officer arrested Jenkins Tuesday, Humphreys said. Williams is still being sought and faces charges of felony burglary and grand larceny.
The tractor is gray with new, beige-colored tires. A 5-foot rotary mower was connected to the back.
Anyone with information can contact Deputy C.D. Lyons at 304-357-0169.
