Two Barnesville men were arrested last week as investigators with the Lamar County sheriff’s office broke up an alleged lawn equipment theft ring.
Arthur Bill (Oscar) Williams, 45, and his nephew, 30-year-old Deonte Terrell Williams, were allegedly behind the theft of a utility trailer and three, highend zero turn radius mowers. The crime spree began with the theft of the trailer from a farm on Gordon Road in mid-April.
