BOONEVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) --A Prentiss County man has been indicted as part of an investigation into stolen farm equipment in north Mississippi and northwest Alabama.
Sheriff Randy Tolar says Dustin King, 30, of Booneville is charged with receiving stolen property.
He is accused of getting a trailer loaded with livestock feed and a tractor stolen from a farm west of Baldwyn earlier this year.
The discovery launched the investigation that helped recover farm equipment, trailers and tractors.
King made bond in Prentiss County and was immediately turned over to Tishomingo County authorities where is he being held without bond because of a previous indictment there.
Tolar says his department received assistance from the Tishomingo County Sheriff's Office, Franklin County Alabama Sheriff's Office, Walker County Alabama Sheriff's Office, Sherman Police Department, Red Bay Alabama Police Department, and the Mississippi Department of Agriculture.
Anyone who has purchased equipment from King is encouraged to contact the Prentiss County Sheriff's Office.
