The Marshall County Sheriff’s Office made an arrest Wednesday afternoon regarding a stolen side by side from New Bethel Road.
The UTV — a Kawasaki Mule — is just one of a half dozen UTVs stolen from the southeastern part of Marshall County in the last 6 weeks. It was stolen from a locked shipping container.
Stephen Ray Paynter of Dixon’s Ridge turned himself in after speaking with deputies a day prior.
Chief Deputy Bill Helms thinks this may be the start of a few arrests because things like department of highways signs and tools have also been taken.
If you have any more information on this case– or on others who could be involved — you can reach out to the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office at (304) 843-1500.
