Dawson-  More charges are expected to be filed against five Lee County teens charged with stealing scrap metal from a Terrell County farmer.

This is what they took, scrap metal and parts from behind Tim McPherson's repair shop on Ben Arthur Road. McPherson shot out the truck's tires as the five tried to escape Saturday. Tuesday 18-year-olds Lindsey Purvis and Dean Napolitano, along with 17-year-olds Homer Tyson, Ryan Edmond and Davis Payne made their first appearance in Terrell County Court.

Bond for each was set at $10,000. They're charged with theft by taking, and investigators say they'll also face charges of theft by receiving.
