(WASHINGTON) - Washington County Sheriff deputies recovered a stolen vehicle and put a man behind bars for stealing it.

The 1980 Chevrolet truck used at local auctions by E.E. Martin Auctioneers was stolen on September 24 from a farm on Bata Road.

A photo of that truck was shared with local media and on Facebook.


Police says sharing the photo prompted tips.

Chief Deputy Brent Miller developed a suspect in the case and an arrest was made following an investigation.


Police arrested 55-year-old Rodney Webb, of Salem, on a charge of auto theft.

Assisting in the investigation were Sheriff Roger Newlon, Deputy Tory Hildreth, Deputy Abby Powers, and Deputy Ryan Larrimore.
