A Marmaduke man faces several felony charges related to theft of property.

Blake Sanders, 33, was arrested Sunday, after he allegedly stole a truck in Paragould. The truck was recovered, but tools and lawn equipment that was in the back of the truck were still missing according to the affidavit for arrest.

Sanders was interviewed by Paragould police and he gave incriminating statements to them according to the affidavit.

He faces a theft of property-vehicle charge, a Class C felony, for the stolen truck. His bond was set at $50,000.

Sanders also faces theft of property and breaking or entering charges, both Class D felonies, related to checks and a wallet reported stolen to the Greene County Sheriff’s Department on Aug. 7.
