POMEROY — A Langsville man was arraigned on three separate cases on Tuesday in Meigs County Common Pleas Court.

Anthony G. Davis, 29, pleaded innocent to charges of receiving stolen property, tampering with evidence, theft of a motor vehicle and failure to comply with the signal of a police officer. Tampering and failure to comply are third-degree felonies, while receiving stolen property and theft are fourth-degree felonies.

The charges against Davis are from three separate alleged incidents in the month of February.

Davis is alleged to have been involved in the Feb. 8 theft of a vehicle from Syracuse which was later found burnt on Buck Run Road near Wilkesville. The charges of receiving stolen property and tampering with evidence relate to this alleged incident.

The theft of a motor vehicle charge relates to the alleged theft of a 2015 Polaris Razr from a Roy Jones Road residence on Feb. 12. The Razr has been recovered and returned to the owner through the investigation by the sheriff’s office.

The final charge against Davis is a result of Davis’ alleged failure to stop when Deputy Chris Jones attempted to conduct a traffic stop on Davis on Feb. 23.

According to previous Sentinel reports, Davis reportedly refused to stop and was pursued through parts of Meigs and Vinton Counties before deputies lost sight of the vehicle. Davis was later apprehended by Deputy Chris Jones at a residence near Wilkesville.

Davis remains in jail on a $50,000 bond as set in Meigs County Court.

An initial pretrial is set for April 3, with a final pretrial on April 17 and a trial date of May 11.
