Suspicious activity noted by a 16-year old girl has lead to two arrests and the recovery of a West Jefferson man’s goods.  The incident occurred Saturday on the lot of Lowes Home Improvement on US 421 in Wilkesboro.  The teen waited in her father’s vehicle while he was shopping in the store, and noticed a van slowly traveling the parking lot, two men inside looking into vehicles.  She then saw the two stop at a truck near her location, taking a piece of equipment off the back of the truck and placing it in their van.  The teen wrote down the tag of the van, and when her father returned, police were called to the scene, finding out that the pressure washer had been stolen from the truck of Charles Sturgill of West Jefferson—a truck driven by one of his employees to the Lowes lot.  With the tag number and surveillance video, police were soon at an Allison Lane North Wilkesboro address where officers recovered the pressure washer and made two arrests, including one man that fled into the woods.  Charged are Genaro Martinez-Perez, 25, and 19-year old Derrick Ryan Anderson, both listing the 411 Allison Lane address.  Each were charged with the larceny, Martinez-Perez charged with Driving While License Revoked, each set $1000 bonds.
