Two men are in jail after police allegedly found them in possession of items stolen from a church parking lot. According to court records, 56-year-old Phillip Thacker and 34-year-old Chris Sawyers, both of Pikeville, were arrested by Pikeville Police Department Sunday afternoon and charged with receiving stolen property. Police were investigating the theft of hand tools from a pickup truck that had been parked at the Jubilee Christian Assembly earlier that day, when they found the items in the men’s possession. The tools were valued at over $500. Both men remain in the Pike County Detention Center.
