The owner of the boat also saw that Byrd had put the boat up for sale on social media, according to the press release.

When deputies tried to contact Byrd, they said he ran and hid in a storage building behind a mattress. However, he was caught and charged with theft by taking.

Investigators were able to find the boat near a residence on Lupo Lane.

Stolen cows:

In December, the sheriff’s office was called to the 900 block of Hugh Lewis Road about stolen cows.

Detectives responded and began questioning neighbors and witnesses and processing the scene.
