A man and his stepson were arrested Monday morning and accused of stealing a bulldozer from a construction site.
Wayne Edward Maroon, 35, and his stepson Christopher Todd Rochelle, 27, both of 3724 Singleleaf Lane in Raleigh, were charged with two counts of felony larceny by the Wake County Sheriff's Office.
Sgt. T. Kessler, on patrol with the sheriff's office, noticed a 2002 Ford F-250 hauling a trailer with a bulldozer on it at 4 a.m. Monday near Mitchell Mill Road in northeastern Wake County, said Phyllis Stephens, spokeswoman for the sheriff's office.
Kessler pulled over the truck and discovered the bulldozer, valued at $300,000, was stolen from a construction site to extend Interstate 540, Stephens said.
Both men are being held at the Wake County jail in lieu of $110,000 bail.
