Johnny Dewayne Croley, 36, faces several counts of receiving stolen property after investigators went to Croley's residence, located on County Road 3 in the Whiton community, and conducted a search.  Several items were seized after Croley admitted to taking them in exchange for methamphetamine. 

Stolen property included power tools, a ZERO-turn lawn mower and drive on trailer, Bobcat loader with two attachments, a 2008 Chevrolet 3500 truck, two fuel tanks and 187 new cross-ties.  The total value of items is approximately $800,000.
