Nephew, uncle steal cars from vacant lot

  • Follow Crime & courts

A nephew and uncle were taken into custody Wednesday after police said they stole vehicles from a vacant lot and sold them.

Richmond County sheriff's Investigator Aaron Hannsz said both men had been subcontracted to help with an eviction at the 1800 block of Harvard Hill Court and were aware that two vehicles had been left in the lot while the owner made arrangements to move them.

Police said Kristopher Lin­dsey Dunn, 23, removed a vehicle from the yard, and the vehicle was later discovered by the owner at Dunn's residence. Police said Dunn and the owner had a verbal agreement that she would not press charges as long as Dunn would allow her to leave the vehicle there in the meantime.

However, Dunn sold the vehicle without permission on June 23 to CMC Recycling, Hannsz said. Charges against Dunn include theft by taking a motor vehicle.

Stanley Duane Dunn, 56, removed the remaining vehicle from the lot on June 25 and sold it to CMC Recycling, Hannsz said. Both suspects told officers they didn't know about the other's actions.

I had a vehicle that broke

I had a vehicle that broke down on I-20 last week, and when I went back to retrieve it, it was gone. I filed a stolen vehicle report with the McDuffie County Sherrifs dept., but so far no news.

There should be a hold period

There should be a hold period on any car tuned into the recycler without a title. That would stop some of this mess.

pffft, they didnt know what

pffft, they didnt know what the other did, whatever. Immoral traits do usually run in the family, in fact they are usually proud of it and teach their little ones. Evidently stupidity does too. Little idiot got a free pass from the property owner and still couldnt control his ignorant self!!!!!!! They deserve what they get, though it wont be much of anything with this joke of a justice system these days.

Theman- you have 24 hours to

Theman- you have 24 hours to retrieve a car that's broken down on a freeway. After that, it's gone.

If you went back after less than 24 hours and it was gone, somebody hauled it away- and it's history, it went to a chop shop.
