Goods from two Ashe County thefts made their way out of the county last week, but the Ashe Sheriff’s Office has made three arrests in those thefts. Reports say that an Ashe resident had a 2000 Saturn stolen from the Beaver Creek area of West Jefferson, the vehicle discovered to have been taken to Virginia and sold for scrap.  Vehicle was not recovered. The investigation led to arrest last week of Chad Michael Johnson, 31, a resident of Elkin.  Johnson, formerly from Ashe County, was charged with Auto Larceny, arrested for the Ashe County Sheriff’s Office by Elkin Police. He bonded out in Surry County, with a court date set for October 4th.
Ashe County Sheriff’s Office also reports that a break-in occurred at a residence on 194 South in the Todd Community, and that household furniture, extension ladders, wood stove, tools, lawnmower and other assorted items were taken. The investigation led to the arrests of two men, David Arlin Miller, 29, of Greentown Road in Lansing, and Joseph Dean Wilcox, 45 of Whenlin Ridge Road in Lansing. Miller is currently in the Ashe County Detention Center under a $25,000 bond with a court date of October 4th, while Wilcox posted a $25,000 unsecured bond set by Magistrate Jackie Johnson and was released. Only a small amount of property has been recovered, as investigators believe that most of the property was taken to Mt City, Tennessee and sold.
