Three from Knox arrested in ATV theft

Three Knox Countians were arrested Monday, November 6 in connection to a stolen all-terrain vehicle (ATV).

At approximately 2:25 p.m., Knox County Deputy Claude Hudson received a complaint of a stolen black 2007 Honda ATV from a residence on Siler Hill Avenue in Corbin. The owner stated he left the ATV at his niece’s residence and when he returned, it was missing. The owner suspected that his niece, Angela Day, 37, of Corbin, and her boyfriend, Andrew Hall, 33, of Corbin, took the ATV.

During his investigation, Deputy Hudson learned that Day and Hall had in fact taken the ATV and hidden it at the residence of Elvis Wynn, 29, of Corbin, on Moore Hill. Deputy Hudson located the ATV chained to a tree at the Moore Hill residence and Wynn possessed the key to the lock. The ATV had also been spray painted red in an attempt to disguise it.

The three individuals were arrested and lodged in the Knox County Detention Center. Day is charged with theft by unlawful taking or disposition-over $500 and second-degree criminal mischief. Hall is charged with theft by unlawful taking or disposition-over $500 and second-degree criminal mischief. Hall was also wanted on a Knox County Bench Warrant for failure to pay the fines on carrying concealed weapon and alcohol Intoxication in a Public Place charges.

Wynn was charged with receiving stolen property-under $10,000 and possession of drug paraphernalia (syringes, snorting straws, scales and baggies also found at his residence).

All three were lodged in the Knox County Detention Center.
