The DeKalb County Sheriff's Department charged two Cannon County men last week with theft of property over $500 for allegedly stealing a steamroller.
Sheriff Patrick Ray says 30 year old Johnny Wayne Wilson of Thurston Young Road, Bradyville TN was charged Tuesday, December 22nd and 31 year old David Allen Bedwell of Hurricane Creek Road, Woodbury was arrested the next day, Wednesday, December 23rd.
Sheriff's Department Detective's allege that the two men went to a farm on Oakley Hollow Road and took a steamroller valued at over $500. The steamroller was then taken to the Ivy Bluff Scrap Yard in Cannon County to be sold. The owners of the scrap yard had been advised of the stolen steamroller and refused to take it. The steamroller was then dumped beside
of a road in Cannon County. Bond for both men was set at $5,000 each.
Wilson will appear in court on January 28th and Bedwell's court date is January 7th.
