Deputies bust theft ring

Thousands of dollars in property recovered
This month, investigators with the Ellis County Sheriff’s Office shut down what they believe to be a theft ring.
Investigators executed searches at two locations — one in Ellis County and the other in Hill County — resulting in the recovery of several trailers believed stolen from the Ellis County area. Also recovered were numerous four wheelers and “mule” type all-terrain vehicles, welders and saddles, said Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Dennis Brearley.
Several days after the find, sheriff’s investigators searched a residence and property in southern Dallas in connection with the investigation of numerous theft and burglary offenses in Ellis County in recent months. Brearley said during the search, investigators recovered numerous items believed stolen, including welders, hand tools, cordless drills, saws, electronics and construction equipment.
The sheriff’s office has also recovered several lawn mowers, four-wheelers and other property from various locations in Ellis County that were reported stolen to the sheriff’s office and other local law enforcement agencies.
Although an exact value of the property has not been determined at this time, the recovery is estimated to be in excess of $100,000.
