Newton County Deputies Make Big Stolen Property Bust



A Wentworth man is in custody after a big stolen property bust in Newton County Tuesday afternoon. Sheriff Ken Copeland tells News Talk KZRG what they found on the property of 41-year-old Garret Falls.

"Six stolen flatbed trailers, a drag race car stolen out of Springfield, a backhoe, three stolen motorcycles, two stolen trucks, several firearms, construction equipment and miscellaneous items, and some methamphetamine and marijuana."

Copeland says police believe these items were stolen by other people and then brought to Falls, who's charged with receiving stolen property, possession of drugs, being a felon in possession of a firearm, and an outstanding warrant. More arrests are anticipated.

The bust comes as part of a joint investigation with Barry County police.
