Sheriff’s officials in Audubon County say a Guthrie County man was arrested Monday night on a charge of 2nd degree theft, associated with the theft on January 1st of two spools of wire from rural Audubon County. 44-year old Ryan Vernon Doty, of Coon Rapids, was taken into custody at around 9-p.m with the assistance of deputies from Carroll County, who also assisted in the investigation.

Officials say Doty allegedly stole the wire from the 1500 block of Swift Avenue. The spools were valued at more than $2,500. Doty was brought to the Audubon County Jail and later released, after posting a $5,000 bond. He’s scheduled to appear in court on Thursday.
