JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - A grand larceny investigation in Jackson County led to two arrests and the recovery of a stolen 4-wheeler and dirt bike, according to Sheriff Mike Ezell.
Ezell said the investigation was launched after deputies responded to a report of a stolen 4-wheeler Tuesday afternoon. According to authorities, a 2006 Suzuki 400 worth $2,500 was reported stolen from a home on Larue Road.
Ezell said the victim learned of the theft when a friend, Darrin McDaniel, told him he had seen someone driving the 4-wheeler down the road.
Investigators were able to identify two suspects after the 4-wheeler was recovered from a home in St. Martin. Ezell identified the suspects as McDaniel, 31, and 45-year-old Ricky Roger Treloar.
McDaniel and Treloar were arrested Thursday and charged with grand larceny. Ezell said McDaniel was also charged with receiving stolen property after investigators recovered a 2014 Hawk Dirt Bike reported stolen out of Ocean Springs. The bike is valued at $3,000.
Both men are being held at the Jackson County Adult Detention Center without bond.
