KINGSPORT, Tenn. (AP) -- When neighbors in Kingsport went to help a man whose home bore the brunt of a tornado, they made a discovery police say couldn't have been caused by the wind.
Police spokesman Thomas Patton said that an air compressor, weed-eater and a welder recently reported stolen turned up at Jerrod Christian's home on Sunday.
Christian was taken to the Kingsport City jail on burglary and theft charges. Jail records did not list an attorney for Christian.
The neighbor, Ed Cleek, says he's happy to have his stuff back.
Christian's house was damaged when a line of storms blew through the state Sunday leaving 10 homes destroyed in its wake.
