KSP solves Beattyville theft case
Kentucky State Police Trooper John Scott Felder solved the case of a stolen motorcycle from Beatyville in 2011.
The uniform citation prepared by Felder states that he received information that the motorcycle had been seen at 260 McKee Road. He stated that when he contacted those living in the apartments there, they told him they had seen Timothy Mayes with the motorcyle and that he was working on it and had control of it.
Felder stated that he had observed the motorcycle sitting at the bottom of the steps leading to Mayes’ apartment.
The citation states that the 1975 Harley-Davidson motorcycle was stolen in the late fall of 2011 from Beattyville which Felder confirmed by running the vehicle identification number through the National Crime Information Center.
Felder stated Mayes was not present when the motorcycle was recovered.
Felder arrested Mayes, 30, and lodged him in the Estill County Jail. His bail was set at $5,000 and he pleaded not guilty at his arraignment.
