The Wayne County Sheriff's Office charged three men in a December robbery of more than $7,000 worth of farm equipment from Sleepy Creek Farms.
The suspects, Jordan Daniel Legg, 21, of LaGrange, Corey Shane Willis, 22, of Seven Springs, and Zachry Tyler Caruana, 24, are each free on $2,500 unsecured bonds.
All three men are charged with larceny, possession of stolen goods and obtaining property by false pretense.
The arrests were made Jan. 28.
Detective Sgt. Larry Mitchell conducted the investigation, which found that 50 feeders, two trailers, 10 fans and 10 fences were stolen from a Sleepy Creek Farms location near Gurley lane in Seven Springs, according to a press release from the Sheriff's Office.
The two trailers were recovered, but the rest of the equipment was sold to a salvage yard, according to the release.
