One arrested, one sought in tractor theft
SISSONVILLE, W.Va. -- Police arrested one man and are looking for another Tuesday in connection with a stolen tractor in Sissonville.
The 1954 Massey-Ferguson tractor, new tires, electronics and a tree stand were reported stolen from a hunting camp along Kelleys Creek Road on Thursday.
Witnesses later saw two men with the tractor at R.J. Recycling along U.S. 60 in Glasgow. The tractor was sold along the roadside before deputies showed up, Kanawha County Sheriff's Cpl. Brian Humphreys said in a news release. Deputies learned the suspects tried to sell the tractor inside the store.
The suspects were identified as Anthony Scott Jenkins, 31, and Joseph A. Williams, 30, both of Whitesville. Deputies arrested Jenkins on Tuesday. He was charged with first-degree robbery and is being held in South Central Regional Jail in lieu of a $5,000 bail.
The tractor is described as a gray colored with a 5-foot rotary mower connected to the back. The tractor's tires are new and beige.
Anyone with information about the tractor or Williams' whereabouts is asked to call the Kanawha County Sheriff's Department at 304-357-0169.
