A Washington, Iowa, man has been charged after Washington County officers recovered three vehicles from a railroad bed.

Michael Mueller, 19, was charged on Oct. 3, 2012, with first-degree theft and joint criminal conduct. The officers found the vehicles on a railroad bed in Washington County.

According to the police complaint, one of the vehicles was a 2005 white F-350 that was reported as stolen earlier that day. The vehicle was valued at more than $10,000. The other two vehicles were also found to be stolen.

A codefendant later reportedly admitted to officers that Mueller told him the truck was stolen and he continued to drive the truck, the complaint said.

First-degree theft is a Class-C felony.
