Pleasantville man charged for stealing ATV last April

A Pleasantville man has been accused of breaking into a garage last April in Plum Township and stealing an ATV valued at $5,000.

Franklin state police filed a criminal complaint in district judge Andrew Fish’s office naming Zachery Dylan Plemmons, 22, of 51 Black Bear Lane in Pleasantville, in the incident that occurred in the overnight hours between April 14-15 of last year.

On April 15, a resident on Shiner Road reported that someone entered his garage and took an ATV and two dirt bikes, the complaint said. After the burglary and theft occurred, the resident put photos of the stolen vehicles on Facebook and requested help finding the items, the complaint said.

On May 15, a woman contacted police and said she had been on Facebook and saw an ATV that matched the description of the one that had been stolen. The woman said she had possibly seen the stolen ATV at Plemmons’ home, the complaint said.

State police then went to Plemmons’ home and searched the area for the stolen vehicle. During this search, a Honda TRX400 with the VIN number of the stolen vehicle was found on or near the property of Plemmons’ residence.

It was determined this ATV was the same vehicle that had been stolen from the Shiner Road residence, the complaint said.

Plemmons was charged with felony counts of burglarynot adapted for overnight accommodation/no person present, theft by unlawful taking of movable property and receiving stolen property.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for April 13 in Central Court.
