A traffic stop by The Bedford County Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigations Division led to the recovery of a stolen truck, several stolen trailers along with tools that were reported missing in several theft cases spanning multiple counties.

The Bedford County Sheriff’s Office CID stopped a pickup truck matching the description of the stolen vehicle after spotting it on Fairfield Pike in the Shelbyville area. Their investigation led them to a home on Philippi Road, where deputies say they found a trailer, which was allegedly stolen with the truck, another stolen trailer from Unionville and a large assortment of tools.

The Shelbyville Police Department reports they were able to link stolen items to two separate burglaries, including one in Coffee County.

The Bedford County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the 17th Judicial Drug Task in the investigation.

Two arrests have since been made in connection with the thefts. Jonathan Blade Sachs and Lauren Nichole Makin have both been charged and are currently in the Bedford County Jail.
