2 charged in metal thefts

3rd suspect sought

CANNONSBURG — Boyd County sheriff’s deputies on Tuesday arrested two men who were allegedly caught in the act of stealing metal from a site in Cannonsburg.

Grant Meadows, 37, of Grayson, and Kenneth Blevins, 45, of Ashand, both were lodged in the Boyd County Detention Center, charged with theft of property valued at more than $10,000, according to a news release from the sheriff’s department.

The two were arrested after the owner of the site, located behind Flying J on Ky. 180, caught them loading metal I-beams onto a truck, the sheriff’s department said. The property owner called 911 and deputies responded and apprehended Meadows and Blevins at the scene. A third suspect fled on foot and is being sought by the sheriff’s department.

The property owner told deputies the thefts had been occurring for the past four days and that more than $50,000 worth of materials had been stolen.
