Another arrest has been made in the ongoing investigation into the ring of stolen zero-turn mowers, tractors and all-terrain vehicles (ATVs).
Ricardo Denaz Jackson, 35, has been charged with dealing in stolen property, a second degree felony.
According to a warrant affidavit, Jackson’s arrest was in connection to the tractor recovered in the arrest of Homer Garner that was reported two weeks ago in The Herald.
The warrant states that Jackson became a suspect during further investigation of a stolen New Holland tractor after the person who bought the tractor produced a cancelled $3,000 check for the purchase.
A warrant states that during an interview Garner said that Jackson was with him at the time of the sale of the tractor to the resident.
The person who bought the tractor verified that Jackson was with Garner.
It further states that Garner said Jackson had contacted him about a tractor he wanted to sell.
Garner agreed to find a buyer which would be the local person mentioned earlier.
The report goes on to say that Garner told authorities that he and Jackson dealt with an individual out of Leon County, but no name was mentioned.
This is an ongoing investigation which has now escalated to over 35 zero-turn mowers being confiscated as well as more tractors and ATVs.
