Four mobile homes stolen from Rogersville dealer’s lot


ROGERSVILLE - Hawkins County Sheriff’s Department investigators are looking for the persons responsible for stealing four mobile homes from a dealership near Rogersville late last month.

Marvin Wilder, owner of Affordable Living at 5010 Highway 11-W east of Rogersville, told deputies Jan. 26 that sometime between the morning of Jan. 25 and Jan. 26 someone hauled away four mobile homes valued at approximately $20,000 each that belonged to an individual named Mark Sawyer.

Wilder told police that Sawyer agreed to rent space at the mobile home dealership to store the four mobile homes, but he hadn’t heard from Sawyer or received a rent payment since December.

The mobile homes taken included two 16-foot-by-80-foot Crimson Trailers, a 14-foot-by-80-foot Redman Trailer, and a 16-foot-by-80-foot Southridge Trailer.

Wilder also reported that 15 axles valued at $55 each and 30 tires valued at $25 each belonging to him were discovered missing at the same time as the four mobile homes. The total value of that missing property is $1,575.
