An Arjay man accused of knowingly receiving stolen ATVs has been indicted by the Bell County Grand Jury.
Justin Anthony Collett, 26, was indicted on two counts of receiving stolen property over $10,000 and three counts of receiving stolen property under $10,000.
According to the indictment, Collett received, retained or disposed of four ATVs and a generator. He reportedly possessed a stolen 2013 Polaris Razor 900XP belonging to Cristian Coffey, a 2013 Polaris Razor 800S belonging to Chad Harris, a 2012 Polaris Razor belonging to Howard Carter, a 2006 Yamaha Raptor 700 belonging to Crystal S. Bennett and a Honda Generator belonging to Alva Patterson.
Earlier reports state that Kentucky State Police Trooper Chad Gregory was contacted by the Knox County Sheriff’s Department for assistance on a burglary case several months ago.
Chief Deputy Derek Eubanks said he had information on possible stolen property in Bell County.
KSP Public Affairs Officer Shane Jacobs said Gregory responded to Weiser Branch Road in Bell County to find the residence where the stolen property was located.
Jacobs said Gregory made contact with the owner of the residence, Collett, and received consent to the search of the residence. Collett was later charged.
Also indicted recently was Raymond Farr Jr., 18, of Middlesboro. He was indicted for first-degree burglary and second-degree assault.
According to the indictment, Farr entered the home of Jason Aldridge with a weapon with the intent to commit a crime. He then allegedly assaulted Aldridge with a deadly weapon or dangerous instrument.
Middlesboro Police officers Barry Cowan and Josh Pratt were the investigating officers on the case.
