Posted: Updated:

Investigators said they've arrested the man who stole more than a hundred tires from a Franklin County business.

Authorities were able to recover 75 of the stolen tires. They said Thomas Wilson, 30, stole the tires from Continental Tire and Axle in Phil Campbell on two different occasions.

Investigators said Wilson stole 42 tires from the Shipyard back in May and then another 75 earlier this week.

After talking with businesses in the area, investigators were then able to track Wilson down. They said the tires were sitting in the front of his home.

Wilson is being held at the Franklin County Detention Center.
