Williamson County arrest man following vehicle theft

An accused thief has been arrested in Williamson County.

Lester Taylor had two active warrants for felony theft cases and charges were pending from other theft cases.

According to a press release from the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office, Taylor’s most recent alleged criminal activity occurred Monday morning when he stole a parked vehicle in Bush.

Video from a neighbor’s home surveillance system helped officers connect Taylor to the crime.

He was arrested in Herrin just after midnight Tuesday.

Authorities say additional theft charges against Taylor are anticipated.
