An Advance man has been arrested, accused of stealing trailers in Davie County and then selling them in Rockingham County.

Nathan Leigh Hodges of Brier Creek Road faces multiple charges in both counties.

The Davie Sheriff’s Office first received a report of the larceny of an enclosed trailer from Tullock Management on US 158 in Bermuda Run.

That was on Jan. 2, reported Sheriff J.D. Hartman.

That trailer was later located at a residence near Stoneville by the Rockingham County Sheriff’s Office, and the resident there told investigators they had purchased the trailer from Hodges, Hartman said.

Rockingham officers found another trailer on that same property that had been reported stolen from Rockingham County. Another reported stolen trailer was found at Hodge’s Advance residence.

The Davie property was searched on Feb. 2, and “detectives were able to locate a large amount of stolen property from Davie County, Rockingham County and Winston-Salem.”

A trailer reported stolen from North Main Street in Mocksville in February was located at the same Stoneville residence, and again, investigators were told it was purchased from Nathan Hodges, Hartman said.

On Feb. 6, a trailer reported stolen in Rockingham County was located at a residence off East Lexington Road in Mocksville.

Hodges faces the following charges in Davie County: 2 counts felony larceny, 2 counts possession of stolen property, felony obtaining property by false pretense, felony maintaining a place for a controlled substance, possession of methamphetamine, possession of Schedule IV controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

He was charged by Rockingham Sheriff’s Office with: felony larceny, breaking and entering a vehicle, larceny after breaking and entering.

Hodges is in custody at the Rockingham County Detention Center.

“These cases are still being investigated by the criminal investigation division of the Davie County Sheriff’s Office,” Hartman said.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to contact the sheriff’s office at 336-751-6238 or
