Law enforcement agencies hauled truckloads of stolen equipment and merchandise down from Clay County's "Murder Mountain."

They found thousands of dollars worth of ATVs, mowers, chain saws, guns, weed eaters, and other equipment.

The Herald has learned that a mower and a motorcycle found at the Clay site was stolen from the Flanagan house in Calhoun, the site of a double murder.

Police also discovered a Taser gun and pepper spray, recently stolen from a Braxton County deputy sheriff's vehicle parked at Burnsville Dam.

Several pieces of new equipment taken from Glenville's Tru-Value Hardware, was also discovered.

A report indicates at least 100 chainsaws, and a large number of ATVs.

It was not learned if any of the ATVs discovered on Murder Mountain had been stolen from Calhoun County.

The WV State Police denied a Freedom of Information request regarding the number of ATVs stolen in Calhoun County, while sources have indicated about 35-40.

No arrests have yet been made for the thefts.
