A Kane man accused of stealing a trailer and mini excavator from a Home Depot in South Carolina and bringing it to his home has been arraigned on charges of receiving stolen property and conspiracy to receive stolen property.
42-year-old Kenneth Zook, and 26-year-old Richard Linville of Reidsville, North Carolina, allegedly took the double-axle trailer and a mini excavator from the store’s parking lot at 4 a.m. on June 17, 2016.
Police were able to find the mini excavator because it was equipped with a GPS, which indicated it was at or near 6878 Highland Road in Kane. Police found it behind a shed on Zook’s property.
Zook is free on unsecured bail. A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for February 12 in front of District Judge David Engman.
A date has not been scheduled yet for Linville’s arraignment.
