Deputies seek owners of stolen items
Polk County Enterprise, September 2007

LIVINGSTON — Polk County sheriff’s deputies recently arrested two men in conjunction with burglary and theft incidents around the Corrigan and Moscow area over the past few months, Lt. Craig Finegan said.
The break-ins occurred all over the north end of Polk County. Most of the items were likely taken from outbuildings or found outside the residence.
Joshua Aaron Keisler, 25, and his brother-in-law Kaylon Lynn Grimes, 33, face several burglary and theft charges, Finegan said.
The suspects typically knocked on the door of a residence to see if anyone was home. If no one came to the door, the suspect would look around the residence for any items of value in the yard, garages or outbuildings, Finegan said.
On Aug. 18, a residence on FM 1987 was burglarized during early morning hours. Stolen items were later recovered that led to the Keisler’s arrest, Finegan said. The investigation deputies recovered other stolen items including chain saws, power tools and generators.
On Sept. 17 Grimes was arrested on an outstanding felony theft warrant. During the investigation into his involvement with the string of burglaries, Finegan identified and located additional stolen property.
Additional property is being recovered from the Humble and Beaumont area.
Other cases under investigation by Corrigan Police Department may be cleared by these two arrests, Finegan said. Both suspects remain in the Polk County Jail.
Officers are still attempting to identify the owners of several of these items, Finegan said.

Anyone  who is missing any of these type of items is asked to contact Finegan at the sheriff’s office at (936) 398-4792 or (936) 329-9028.
