— A 63-year-old Hobgood man was caught with a tractor stolen from a farmer in Scotland Neck, according to the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office.

The tractor was reported stolen by a local farmer in December 2006.

In August 2009, the tractor was located in a field near Scotland Neck.

The investigation resulted in the arrest of Andrew Davis Jr.

Davis is charged with possession of stolen property. He was being held Friday under $20,000 bond at the Halifax County jail. His next court date is Nov. 18.

    starshield - How do you know he has been stealing tractors for years? If you have any proof, you should have shared that with the authorities over the years. Without proof, you should not be spreading lies or baseless conjecture.

    Why would that make you go "hmmm"? Do you have some kind of grudge or possibly benefit in some way if it were true?

    Sometimes that "good deal" is too good to be true.
