Receiving Stolen Property O/$300 Investigation in Marshall County
Date of News Release: 09/12/2006
(MAYFIELD, KY) - As part of the Post 1 criminal patrol detail, these subjects (Nettie D. Brown and Claude H. Brown) were stopped for a seatbelt violation. After talking to the driver and passenger, they were vague about their destination. When troopers asked about the large brass object in the back seat, the subjects refused to discuss it. Upon further investigation, it was determined that the brass object had been stolen from Illinois, and the subjects were enroute to Gilbertsville to sell it at a salvage yard. Both subjects were subsequently arrested, and were charged with Receiving Stolen Property over $300. They were lodged in the Marshall County Jail.
