Detectives have charged two men for their involvement in multiple thefts and burglaries in Bradley County.

On Monday the Cleveland Police Department responded to Ocoee Crossing in reference to a subject attempting to steal a backhoe. Upon officers’ arrival they located a Dodge Ram flatbed truck with an attached flatbed trailer that was used to load the backhoe, and determined a subject fled on foot prior to their arrival. During investigation officers learned the truck and trailer had been stolen from the Blue Springs community in southeastern Bradley County, which led to Bradley County Sheriff Office’s detectives responding to the scene. After processing evidence and video surveillance, detectives were able to identify the subject as Aaron Patterson, who was also involved in a separate attempted theft of a truck and equipment on Kile Lane.

The victim on Kile Lane was able to provide photos of the subject involved in the attempted theft which led to the identification of Patterson.

Aaron Scott Patterson, 25, of Cleveland, faces the following charges from Bradley County Sheriff’s Office and Cleveland Police Department:

• Two counts of attempted theft over $10,000
• Theft over $10,000
• Theft over $2,500
• Auto burglary
• Burglary
• Felony vandalism over $1,000

On Wednesday, a Bradley County Sheriff Office’s patrol deputy conducted a traffic stop on a black Ford F-150 truck. During the traffic stop, the patrol deputy was able to determine the attached trailer, along with two motorcycles inside the trailer, were reported stolen in Bradley County on Monday.

The driver of the truck, identified as Nicholas Stroud, was arrested at the scene.

Nicholas Lee Stroud, 33, of Cleveland, faces the following charges:

• Theft over $10,000
• Theft of property over $10,000
• Burglary

Stroud was also served outstanding criminal warrants from Bradley County General Sessions Criminal Court.

Sheriff Eric Watson said, “Criminals should be aware that local law-enforcement is dedicated to solving criminal acts that deprive residents in this community. Through joint-investigation by Cleveland Police Department and Bradley County Sheriff’s Office, numerous thefts and burglaries have been solved which have resulted in the recovery of thousands of dollars of residents’ stolen property.”
