By Bonnie Culverhouse

A north Webster Parish man allegedly was coerced by a juvenile to help him steal and sell an all-terrain vehicle.

Kenny Neal Evans, 52, of Springhill, was arrested by Springhill Police and charged with illegal possession of stolen things and contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile. According to the report, the juvenile alleged Evans assisted him in stealing the vehicle and their attempt to sell it.

On January 12 Springhill police were contacted by a citizen who was approached by Evans, a “suspicious looking” male, accompanied by a 14-year-old male asking him to buy a 2020 Yamaha Viking Camo Side-By-Side valued at $14,000.

Springhill Police made contact with Webster Parish Deputies and confirmed the vehicle was stolen that morning from Shongaloo.

Evans and the juvenile reportedly went to the local Office of Motor Vehicles and obtained a bill of sale, then returned to the potential buyer.

Evans and the juvenile were taken into custody.
