Stolen Property Recovered in Wood County

Posted: Updated:

WOOD COUNTY (KYTX)- The Wood County Sheriff's Office is in the process of conducting a large scale investigation into a drug and theft ring that has been operating in the south eastern part of our county. Investigators determined that certain suspects were stealing property such as four wheelers and firearms for the purpose of trading the stolen property for drugs. The "middle man" drug dealer was then exchanging the stolen property for a larger amount of drugs. As a part of that investigation, on March 6, 2014, Wood County Investigators obtained and executed a search warrant in Panola County near Carthage, Texas. The search warrant yielded a large amount of stolen property including hundreds of firearms, four wheelers, stolen lawn mowers, stolen vehicles, as well as drugs and paraphernalia. The investigation is continuing and arrest warrants will be obtained for a number of suspects. The operation will result in the solving of numerous thefts and burglaries in Wood and surrounding counties.

Sheriff Jim Brown extends his appreciation to Panola County Sheriff's Office, Panola County Constables Office, the DPS Auto Task Force and the US Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms Agency for their assistance in the investigation.
