FROM EARLIER REPORT:
On Tuesday, August 24, 2010 Woodbury Police Department Sergeant Kevin Mooneyham was dispatched to Quality Tool and Engineering on Bryant Lane. The call was in reference to a suspicious blue truck pulling around to the rear of the building.
While enroute to that location, Sergeant Mooneyham met a blue Nissan on South College Street. As Mooneyham was meeting the vehicle, he identified the driver as David Bedwell. Mooneyham also noticed that in the bed of the truck was steel plates, that was consistent with metal used at Quality Tool and Engineering.
Mooneyham turned around and stopped the truck on McFerrin Street. As the stop was made David Bedwell came to Mooneyham and asked "What can I do for you so that I can take it and put it back where I got it ?," to which Mooneyham replied "nothing".
Bedwell as well as passenger Gary Davis of Sunny Slope Road, Woodbury, were both taken into custody for the offenses of Theft under $500.00, Criminal trespass and Criminal conspiracy.
Bedwell was also charged with Driving while license suspended 2nd offense.
During the course of the investigation Mooneyham learned that Steven Davis was also a passenger in the truck, who had fled on foot, and also learned that the metal was being sold at Ivy Bluff Auto Salvage.
Mooneyham along with Cannon County Sheriff's Deputy Randy Neal then went to Ivy Bluff Auto Salvage, where it was also discovered that the same type metal was also being sold to them by Nathan and Paula Davis. Paula Davis was also arrested for one count of theft under $500.00. Arrest are still pending for both Nathan and Steven Davis.
Anyone having information as to their whereabouts is asked to contact the Woodbury Police Department at 563-5940.
Assisting Sergeant Mooneyham in the investigation was Sergeant John House, Officers Brent Brock, Chris Brown and Deputy Randy Neal.
