A McKelvey Road, Fountain Inn man called the Laurens County Sheriff’s Office to Ridgecrest Drive, Fountain Inn at 11:07 yesterday morning. Deputy Jamie Lee Edwards talked with the man at Thompson’s Scrap Yard, who said he came to the scrap yard and saw items he owns sitting there. He noted a red tiller, a blue and red metal cylinder container, a shop fan and a generator as items apparently taken from his property since last Thursday. The people who brought the items in were reportedly to return with more scrap. When these two men arrived back at the scrap metal yard, Deputy Edwards placed them under arrest. 50-year-old Tony Douglas Porter of 647 Slaton Shoals Road, Pelzer and 18-year-old Jason Allen “Jay” Brown of 579 Richie Road, Fountain Inn were placed in the Johnson Detention Center. They were being held for warrants Deputy Edwards was seeking to charge them with Possession of Stolen Property.
