On Thursday at 7:23 pm Deputy Howard of the Sheriff’s Office spoke with a complainant on Pasture Drive in Gray Court concerning tools missing from the residence. The victim said her son had stayed at the house and when he left her table saw was missing. She said she saw two days later where her son had posted it on craigslist for sale. She said she didn’t want to press charges but did want it back.
After further investigation, Friday at 2:31 pm Sgt. Nations and Corporal Edwards were at a location on Highway 76 in Laurens talking with a resident concerning the stolen table saw. The woman in possession of the saw said she had called the individual that had brought her the saw and he was on his way. She then saw the person was passing the residence on a moped traveling east on Highway 76. Sergeant Nations got into his patrol car to catch up with the moped. He followed the moped onto Greenpond Rd. then Rabun Church Rd. The moped did not stop immediately and the operator dropped what appeared to be a glass pipe in the road. The driver finally pulled over. The driver was identified by Sgt. Nations from prior experiences. After calling in the drivers info, a hit came back as he was wanted by the Seneca Police Department. After a search, marijuana was found on him as well. He also didn’t have a moped license. After being marandized, the subject was asked about the stolen table saw. He stated that he didn’t know it was stolen when he took it to be sold. He said after he had taken it to be sold, the person he got it from told him they had stolen it from their mother. The moped was picked up and taken to impound.
