Thomas said detectives from the Troy Police Department joined the search to assist in identifying some of the stolen property.

Thomas said Christopher Landon Howard, 31, was arrested on an outstanding warrant and placed in the Pike County Jail. He was also charged with first-degree receiving stolen property. His bond was set at $30,000.

“I want to compliment our investigators, Lt. Kevin Childs, Sgt. Carlton Bean and Sgt. David Thomas,” Thomas said. “They worked this case really hard for a couple of days and completed a solid investigation. He was stealing from retail stores, individuals, the railroad and who knows who else. The county is a lot safer with him off the street.”
