Grainery Theft Suspect Arrested
HENDERSON, Tenn. - A Henderson man has been arrested, accused of breaking into a local grainery.
Brandon Pickens said he has had enough of the break-ins.
"I try to live a Godly life, and do things the right way, and then you have people that come in and take that from you and violate your privacy," Pickens said.
His business, Chester County Grain, has been broken into several times. The first time was about two years ago.
Now he has got an extra set of eyes.
"At that time we didn't have the surveillance, but now we've got the cameras, and they do a good job."
The two most recent break-ins happened in late February, and early Monday morning.
And thanks to his cameras, Henderson Police have charged Tobias Davis with burglary and theft of more than $500 in Monday's incident.
"We come in, notice some air conditioners are missing, we start looking around, we notice there's a hole cut in the fence, that we're missing some other things," Pickens said. "We go back and look at our video, and this time get a very good facial shot of a gentleman here in Henderson."
Police said Davis used a wheelbarrow to move the stolen items to a house just down the street.
Officers said Davis later resold the items at a nearby recycling center.
Pickens said he fears his business will be a target again, but he is glad to have the cameras just in case.
"There's a lot of people out there just like him that can be here the next weekend."
Police said Davis was released from the Chester County Jail on $5,000 bond.
