Pallets Stolen From Tractor Supply
Newport police responded to Tractor Supply in the Western Plaza after an employee there spotted a man loading 75-100 pallets up on a trailer, then driving away. The employee noted the man was 34 year old Willard Jones who has stolen pallets in the past. The employee followed Jones who drove the pallets to Lakeway Pallets on 25E. The manager of Lakeway Pallet told police that Willard Jones had indeed brought the pallets to their business, but they refused them. Tractor Supply stated they would not file charges if the pallets were returned, so no arrest was made in that theft. Those pallets were worth around $600.
