On Tuesday, May 19th NCSO patrol was dispatched to the 6000 block of FM 1126 Emhouse for an attempt to locate a stolen skid steer out of Dallas.

Upon arrival, our patrol units located four individuals at the location along with the stolen skid steer. The Deputies later located two additional stolen skid steers on the property that were reported stolen out of the Dallas area as well.

All four suspects were arrested and charged with theft of property over $150,000. One suspect was also charged with possession of controlled substance under a gram and one suspect was charged with possession of controlled substance PG 3 under 28 grams.

The recovered stolen skid steers had estimated values of over $150,000.

A great job by our patrol and CID divisions today. I am very proud that they broke up this commercial theft ring and recovered this stolen equipment for the owners.
