A Greenbrier County man was arrested on the evening of Sunday, November 1, for allegations partially stemming from an incident that occurred on October 11.
Aaron Douglas Green, 29, of Cavendish Road in Rainelle is facing charges of trespassing, breaking and entering, attempting to commit a felony, petit larceny and destruction of property.
On the morning of Sunday, October 11, Green allegedly travelled to Tincher Road on Simms Mountain in Rainelle. According to the criminal complaint, Green is accused of trespassing onto a private farm, gaining access to an out-building on the property and stealing a Stihl MS 170-model chainsaw worth approximately $300.
Green then allegedly travelled approximately one-mile to another farm. The complaint states that Green then used the stolen chainsaw to cut down a locked gate-post in order to gain access to the property. The destruction of the gate-post resulted in approximately $200 worth of damage. Green allegedly then cut one additional pole which connected the gate to a barn, causing an additional $400 in damages.
Located within the barn was a John Deere tractor, valued at approximately $7,000. According to the criminal complaint, Green was in the process of attempting to steal the tractor as the owner of the farm arrived to discover what was occurring.
Green is currently being held in Southern Regional Jail for these charges, as well as charges for a separate incident which occurred in Fayette County. No bail has been set at this time.
