Sheriff Chris Quire said the thefts occurred in Franklin and other counties, including Scott and Jefferson.

Authorities collected thousands of dollars worth of tools, hand tools and lawn equipment. Quire said that the items are being categorized by serial number and returned.
“As a reminder, there are several ways to mark your property in order to help law enforcement recover it in the event it is stolen,” he stated.
“During this particular case, the most crucial piece of evidence was a victim’s name inscribed on a certain tool with a permanent marker. Remember, without an identifying mark or serial number, it is very difficult for us to ever locate items you may have stolen from you.”
The sheriff also said more arrests in this case are expected as it “continues to develop and more victims are located.”
