Batteries' theft leads to Graves arrest

Staff report

A Mayfield man was arrested Thursday after police charged him with taking car batteries from two businesses. 

Bryan Dillon, 42, was charged with third-degree burglary and four counts of receiving stolen property. The burglaries were Saturday and Sunday, Graves County Deputy Sheriff Jason Harpole said in a news release.

Sheriff Dewayne Redmon reported that his department received a theft complaint Tuesday from Riley's RV Service on Ky. 121 N. The business reported that two RV batteries had been stolen Saturday, and a video of the thief had been taken.

Deputies learned of a similar incident at Hawkins' Used Auto Parts on U.S. 45 North on Sunday, when someone entered a building and stole batteries. The business told deputies it also had video of the culprit.

Dillon was brought to the sheriff's office and confronted with the evidence. Some of the batteries were located at his residence. He was taken to Graves County Detention Center on the third-degree burglary charge, Harpole said.

Deputies obtained a search warrant for Dillon's home and recovered the batteries. During the search, they also found chainsaws stolen from Lowe's in Mayfield. Dillon was then charged with four counts of receiving stolen property, Harpole said.
