Deputies Search for Stolen Tractor, Identify Suspects

The Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office has been investating the case of a stolen tractor, along with several appliances, electrical components, and a tree stand. The suspects apparently tried to sell the stolen tractor to R.J. Recycling, but the business refused to accept it. During the course of the investigation the two suspects were identified as 31-year old Anthony Scott Jenkins of Whitesville, and 30-year old Joseph A. Williams, also of Whitesville. Whitesville police tracked down Jenkins and arrested him yesterday, and the warrants for Williams are still outstanding. He is charged with burglary and grand larceny, both felonies. The 1954 Massey Ferguson TO-30 tractor still hasn't been located. It's gray in color except for the rear rims. Corporal BD Humphreys tells us the tires are new, and beige in color. A 5 foot rotary mower was attached to the back.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the tractor or the location of Joseph Williams is asked to contact Deputy C. D. Lyons at 304-357-0169.
