According to the Cabell County Sheriff's Office, they are searching for a man wanted in Tennessee and West Virginia.

Justin Brafford, 32, is wanted in connection to a string of robberies and drug trafficking charges.

Deputies say Brafford targeted work trucks and stole $30,000 worth of tools from trucks parked in motels.  He later pawned the tools at a Cabell County pawn shop.

Sgt. Mike Wentz says U.S. Marshals are pursuing Brafford.  He is also wanted in Tennessee on drug trafficking charges and was charged in Cabell County last April with grand larceny, fleeing and obstructing after being suspected of stealing a generator.

Brafford's initial case is still in the Grand Jury process.

Brafford is described as being six foot tall, weighing about 225 pounds with a short haircut.

Deputies are warning people with expensive work equipment to keep them locked up and to not leave any tools in their vehicle.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Cabell County Sheriff's Office or 911.
