MAN ARRESTED FOR POSSESSING TWO STOLEN MOTORCYCLES
Monday, September 23, 2013

 
LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC - Lexington County Sheriff’s Department detectives arrested a 24-year-old Gilbert man on charges that the man possessed two motorcycles that had been reported stolen. At the time of his arrest, the man was driving one of the stolen motorcycles with a South Carolina driver’s license that had been suspended.

Lexington County Sheriff James R. Metts said detectives arrested Steven Anthony Dennis, 24, of 110 West Fork Road, Gilbert, on Thursday, September 19 on arrest warrants on charges of grand larceny, possessing a stolen motor vehicle and second-offense driving a motor vehicle with a South Carolina driver’s license that had been suspended. Dennis was released from the Lexington County Detention Center on Sunday, September 22 after posting bail totaling $16,275.

An arrest warrant alleges that on Wednesday, September 18 Dennis stole a black 2013 Kawasaki EX-300 motorcycle worth about $6,000 from outside a home on Windy Wood Road near Lexington, Metts said. Detectives later recovered the motorcycle. The ignition mechanism on the motorcycle was damaged.

In addition, an arrest warrant alleges that at the time of his arrest on Neely Wingard Road near Gilbert Dennis was driving a motorcycle, which was worth about $4,000, that had been reported stolen in Aiken County, Metts said. Dennis was driving the motorcycle even though his South Carolina’s driver’s license had been suspended.

Metts asked anyone with information about additional criminal activity involving Dennis to contact the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department at (803) 785-8230 or CrimeStoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
