Monterey Man Charged With Stealing Vehicle

A Monterey man has landed behind bars for allegedly stealing a vehicle Monday.

The Putnam County Sheriff’s Office charged 25-year-old Canton Allen Flowers with theft of property.

According to an arrest warrant, Sergeant Larry Bates spotted Flowers driving a mud-covered vehicle on Welch Avenue in Monterey.

A records check of the registration revealed someone had reported the 2014 Chevrolet Cruze stolen from a Cookeville business.

Flowers admitted to driving the vehicle, but said his friend had loaned it to him.

Flowers remains jailed on $5,000 bond.
