Deputies find 4 stolen trucks, tractor at home in Shelby County; Wilsonville man arrested
A Wilsonville man has been arrested on stolen property charges after sheriff's deputies found stolen trucks at his home in Shelby County on Monday.
Eric Lynn Vining, 39, is charged with four counts of first-degree receiving stolen property and remains in the Shelby County Jail on bonds totaling $120,000.
Investigators received an anonymous tip regarding possible stolen property at Vining's home in the 200 block of Meadow Crest Farm Road and they went to the location to follow up on the report. Upon arriving, sheriff's deputies witnessed a vehicle fleeing from the property through a field behind the home, eventually breaking through a fence line. A BOLO for the vehicle was issued to all on-duty deputies and a short time later, the suspect was spotted in the Four Mile area. A pursuit followed before the driver jumped from the vehicle, fleeing deputies on foot. Despite a search effort with assistance from K9s, the suspect eluded capture.
Investigators executed a search warrant at Vining's property and found four pickup trucks, a tractor and a trailer, all determined to be stolen.
The Shelby County Sheriff's Office continues to investigate and additional charges could be filed.
The identity of the suspect who escaped authorities hasn't been released.
