Man sold other tools at area pawn shops

A Golden man has been charged with two felonies in relation to items stolen from a home on West Randy Drive in Golden.

Christopher Blevins, 31, of Golden, is charged with second-degree burglary and theft after allegedly taking a four-wheeler and various tools from the victim's garage. Blevins allegedly forced entry into the victim's home, going into two garages and the residence.

According to a probable cause statement filed by Sgt. Carl Cosper Jr., deputy with the Barry County Sheriff's Office, the victim saw Blevins drive onto his property in a Dodge pickup on May 2. For three days after, he saw the same vehicle driving around with a Honda Rancher 400cc four-wheeler in the back. Blevins also allegedly sold the four-wheeler for $1,500.

Blevins is also accused of stealing a belt sander and chainsaw at a pawn shop in Eureka Springs, Ark., and an air tool kit at a pawn shop in Eagle Rock. The three items together were valued at $610.

A warrant for Blevins was filed on May 17, and he was arrested on Friday.

He is being held in the Barry County jail on a $10,000 bond. A disposition hearing has been scheduled for July 28 at 8:30 a.m. in the courtroom of Judge Robert Foulke.
