Two young men were arrested last week after they allegedly stole a four-wheeler from a yard on Macedonia Church Road.
Jagger Tobias Syed Brown, 18, of Stephens, and Jordan Zachery Jackson, 20, of Danielsville, were each charged with one count of theft by taking.
Deputy Mason Bennett was dispatched to meet with two men who told him the four-wheeler had been stolen about 10 minutes prior. They said the dogs began barking and they heard the four-wheeler start up about halfway down the driveway.
While speaking with them a four-wheeler came down the road and they told Bennett it was theirs. Bennett got in his patrol car and preformed a traffic stop on it with assistance from Sgt. Daniel Martin. Brown and Jackson were advised to hold up their hands and asked if they had any weapons on them. Jackson told officers he had a handgun between his legs.
Brown, who was driving the ATV, told Bennett that a friend dropped it off to them and that they were just riding it. He could not provide the name of the friend. He also said he did not know his passenger was armed.
Jackson, spoken to separately, said they took the ATV from someone’s house. He said they pushed it down the driveway before starting it. He said the gun belonged to his companion and that both of them had “every intention of bringing (the four-wheeler) back, they just needed a ride.”
