JONES COUNTY -

Deputies have arrested a teen for allegedly stealing an ATV in Jones County.

Khiron Jamel Mills, 18, of Sugarberry Court in Jacksonville, was taken into custody on Oct. 11.

Investigators said Mills stole a four-wheeler from Houston Road in the Comfort area of Jones County on Oct. 4.  The vehicle was then taken out of the county and sold on Facebook for $300, said deputies.

The four-wheeler was later returned to the owners, according to investigators.

Mills was charged with felony larceny of a motor vehicle. He was issued a $10,000 bond and was released.  Additional charges and more arrests are possible, investigators said.

"I have a great disdain for thieves. They destroy a victim's sense of security in their own home and that is what I hate about them most," said Jones County Sheriff Danny R. Heath.
