A Wilkes man is in custody this week, thanks, in part, to
According to reports, 28-year-old Shaun Christopher Swain
bid on a $4,000 motorcycle from G.R. Chevrolet in Henry County, Virginia. When
he went to collect, there was a mix up, Henry County authorities say. He left
with the bike before payment had gone through- and, according to the
dealership, efforts to get the money from Swain were futile.
Henry County authorities issued a warrant for Swain that was served on October 2. The motorcycle was located, along with four
four-wheelers and one additional motorcycle. Deputies are currently running the
serial numbers of the vehicles, but, at this time, have only impounded the
Virginia motorcycle. The investigation is still active, Wilkes officials say.
