Through the use of a surveillance plan, the case of a missing stolen four-wheeler may just have been solved. Two suspects have been arrested and charged with felony possession of stolen goods: William T. Alberg, 17, and Brandon L. Alberg, 16, both of 121 Walter Lane in King.The crime was committed on Wednesday, Mar. 16, on Moser Road in King. Shortly afterward, the owner of the stolen four-wheeler filed a report that the Kawasaki four-wheeler had been taken from under a shed on his property.The investigative division of the Stokes County Sheriff’s Office began work on the case once it was turned over to them. “Detectives began comparing and seeking any and all available information or evidence,” said Chief Deputy Craig Carico of the Stokes County Sheriff’s Office.Early leads in this case led the detectives to a vacant lot off Kiser Road, near Highway 66 in King. There they found the missing four-wheeler. Other evidence was also present at that property.Since no one was seen at the site with the four-wheeler, Stokes County Sheriff Mike Marshall put a surveillance operation into action. The plan was that law enforcement officers would remain stationary near the vacant lot as they kept a lookout over the four-wheeler. They were there for several hours before their break came on Friday, Mar. 18.The officers arrested the Albergs and incarcerated them in the Stokes County Jail with secured bonds of $10,000 apiece. The stolen four-wheeler was then returned to the owner.The court date for the Albergs is pending. This article appeared in Tuesday's edition of the Stokes News.
