Calvin Dearwester (pictured), 51, at large, was taken into custody after a brief investigation by the Logan County Sheriff's Office.

Beelman followed the vehicle to D & J Scrap Metal, 621 Plumvalley Street.
Deputies found Dearwester at 218 Oakland Square around eleven p.m.
He was charged with misdemeanor counts of theft and criminal trespass, then lodged in the Logan County Jail.
The stolen scrap metal was worth $42.
