Franklin County deputies searching for theft suspects
A couple is on the run in Franklin County after trying to sell 15 steel fence panels that were not theirs.
According to the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office, on Tuesday deputies were sent to Hope Valley Road, just north of Pasco, where 38-year-old Curtis Williams had trespassed onto a property.
Deputies say Williams took pictures of the steel fence panels and posted them for sale on Facebook. A buyer then met him at the property.
A witness saw Williams starting to load the panels onto the buyer’s car.
The property owner was alerted and he had Williams unload the panels before deputies arrived.
Deputies searched for Williams and his alleged accomplice, 43-year-old Darci A. Daveport, but they did not find them.
Anyone with information on Williams or Daveport’s whereabouts are asked to contact the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office.
