Detectives from the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office Property Crimes Division have recovered a stolen 25-foot travel trailer and arrested Rodney Dion Lough, 45, for its theft.
Lough has been charged with theft over $2,500 and fugitive from justice.
On Feb. 21, BCSO Property Crimes detectives received reports of a stolen 25-foot 2010 Coachmen Catalina travel trailer from Freewill Road.
Through the course of the investigation, the suspect’s truck and stolen camper were observed on numerous surveillance cameras in the area ranging from close proximity of the theft all the way into Meigs County. The suspect was identified as Lough, formerly of Chattanooga.
With the assistance of Meigs County investigators, Lough was located at a residence on Sneed Road in Decatur shortly after detectives spotted the stolen camper with the suspect’s truck.
Before being taken into custody, Lough attempted to provide a false name and inconsistent statements about how he obtained the travel trailer.
Lough is also wanted on outstanding warrants in Walker County and Dade County in Georgia. He has been booked in the Bradley County Jail.
