The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office recently recovered two vehicles and several items stolen from a home in Moneta last month.
Kenneth Michael Caron, 34, of Bedford County was arrested in Botetourt County and charged with the theft of a Chevy Silverado, Cadillac Deville, all-terrain vehicle and several other items from a home on Lakewood Forest Road. He surrendered to officers without incident after briefly barricading himself in a home in Botetourt County, according to a release by Capt. Phillip Young with the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office.
The thefts were reported on May 30 when a neighbor noticed a garage door open at the home. Upon further inspection, the neighbor discovered a door in the back of the residence was broken into.
“Investigators with the sheriff’s office soon developed a relative, Kenneth Caron, as a suspect,” Young said.
The Cadillac Deville was found at Walmart in Clearbrook on May 31. With help from the Botetourt County Sheriff’s Office, the Chevy Silverado and ATV were found at a home in Botetourt County. A search warrant was issued for the home, and Caron barricaded himself inside before eventually surrendering to police.
Sixty items, totaling more than $32,000, were recovered from the home and returned to owners.
Caron was arrested by officers in Botetourt County on June 3. He was charged with two counts of grand larceny of a vehicle, breaking and entering with intent to commit a felony and grand larceny of personal property.
Young said Caron is facing additional charges in Botetourt County.
