The Scott County Sheriff’s Office arrested three persons in connection with over $100,000.00 in stolen property.  The Bishop Farm, located in Scott County, has been a target of thieves for several weeks and the persons responsible were recently apprehended.

The first arrest came on July 10th shortly after a tip was received that there was a man on the Bishop property and that he was inside of a barn.  Upon Officers arrival, James R. O’Brien II was found inside making perpetrations to remove items of interest; he could be heard hammering on equipment inside.  O’Brien was subsequently taken into custody and charged with Conspiracy to Commit Theft, Trespass and Resisting Law Enforcement.       

The second arrests came on July 12th when a tip was received by a neighbor stating that someone had just removed a tractor from the Bishop barn.  With this information, Deputies went to the location were the tractor was said to be going, a business know as Bumper to Bumper, a recycling center in Scott County.  The tractor was in the possession of Kenny Riley and Garry Mc Allister, who admitted that they had removed it from the Bishop property and sold several “loads” of scrap to Bumper to Bumper.  The tractor and other items were recovered and returned to the rightful owners. 

This investigation is considered ongoing and additional arrests are expected.
