Stolen military bronze foot markers recovered

The Pickett County Sheriff’s Department once again received an anonymous tip regarding more possible stolen cemetery items.
Deputy James Hammock was called to the residence of Brad Stinson, 30, 3287 Moodyville Rd., Friday, June 13th, which was the same residence where the sheriff’s department recovered cemetery items last week.
When Deputy Hammock thoroughly searched the property, he noticed several trash bags and found that several of them contained more silk flower arrangements and ceramic items.
While searching in the same area, located on the edge of the woods, he found 10 of the missing military bronze foot markers underneath leaves and debris.
Stinson is charged with 10 counts of theft over $1,000, a Class D Felony, and more charges are pending. He is currently being held at the Overton County Justice Center under a $100,000 bond and will appear before General Sessions Judge Ronnie Zachary on July 11th.
