Fourteen people, including several from Jackson County, were arrested after police broke up an alleged theft ring that involved three counties and $250,000 worth of stolen property.

The arrests were the result of an investigation into break-ins throughout Jackson, Kanawha, and Putnam counties. Law enforcement agencies from all three areas held a press conference earlier this week announcing the arrests.

The sheriffs departments in all three counties worked with the West Virginia State Police and the U.S. Marshal Service on the investigation, which resulted in more than 60 felony charges.

Jackson County Sheriff’s Department Chief Deputy Ross Mellinger said the alleged thieves even stole one of his own all-terrain vehicles and used it in later break-ins.

The investigation centered around Ervin “Tubby” Page and his associates, Kanawha County Sheriff Michael Rutherford said during the news conference.

Hand tools worth a total of $25,000, five ATVs, including two side-by-sides, one Toyota recreational vehicle, and a rare 1969 Ford Torino worth $125,000 were among the items police recovered.

“It was one of the biggest theft rings I can recall in recent memory. It was a pretty big hit. We’ve been working on it several months and finally put it to bed,” Mellinger said. “We were able to put together a strong case between us and the sheriff’s departments in Kanawha, and Putnam, and the state police in Winfield.

Many of the thefts occurred in Jackson County, Mellinger said.

“They would steal stuff in Jackson County and move it down to Sissonville,” he said. “They were true professionals. You hear people make the off-the-cuff comment about a career criminals. Well this is their career; this is what they do for a living.”
