16CF188 - LeCocq, Tyler P - Prelim Hearing - Officer Scott Woods of the Christian County Sheriff’s Office testified on behalf of the state. Said he responded to a call about a break in. Officer Woods arrived on scene and spoke with the owners of the property and had learned a motorcycle and 4 wheeler missing from a shed. Officers who responded noticed screws removed from the siding of the shed where entry had been made. Also found a hammer and mask in proximity to where entry had been made. Officers also found fingerprints on the siding of the shed. Those fingerprints were identified to be those of defendant. Officer Woods said the 4 wheeler was recovered in Springfield. Said during the investigation a tracker had been placed in defendant’s vehicle, where he had stopped at a shop where the owner later revealed the defendant had sold him the 4 wheeler. The serial number matched the one stolen on that 4 wheeler. Woods also testified that when the defendant was arrested, several other stolen items were found in defendant’s vehicle, and how several of those items have been traced back to other items reported stolen. State argued that there is definitive evidence pointing to defendant committing the crime, and asked that the court find probable cause. Defense waives formal arraignment and enters plea of not guilty. Court finds probable cause. Jury Trial set for November 7th. Further pretrial for October 17th.
