A Dry Branch man spotted his stolen tractor Sunday evening as it was being hauled down Ocmulgee East Boulevard on a trailer.
The man, who lives on Possum Hollow Road, called authorities. The tractor, a $25,000 Kubota, had been stolen two days earlier.
After he called the cops, the tractors owner followed the tractor and the Ford Explorer that was towing it.
Before long, a Bibb County sheriffs deputy stopped the Explorer and arrested Monte Dale Thompson of Macon, according to an incident report.
Thompson, 62, was jailed on a theft-by-receiving charge and later released on bond.
According to the deputys report, the owners records matched serial numbers on the tractor and the trailer, which were returned to the owner.
