LEXINGTON COUNTY, S.C. (WIS) - Two men are accused of stealing a trailer from a neighbor’s home in Lexington County.
“After receiving a call from a witness, deputies responded to a theft of a trailer on Bush River Road,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “The witness reported seeing a white pickup truck speed off after stealing his neighbor’s trailer.”
41-year-old Jason Wilson of Lexington was charged with grand larceny and 37-year-old Maynard Bartlett of Columbia was charged with grand larceny and receiving stolen goods, according to arrest warrants.
