$2M in stolen heavy equipment recovered in Ark.

Posted: Updated:

MULBERRY, Ark. (AP) - Authorities have arrested a man living near Mulberry after he was allegedly caught with $2 million in stolen heavy equipment and other materials.

Crawford County sheriff's deputies on Wednesday arrested Toby Yancy for possession of equipment that included a backhoe and a bulldozer. Deputies also found semi-trailers with allegedly stolen goods inside.

Fort Smith television station KHBS reports (http://is.gd/UFF5D2 ) some of the items were stolen nearby. Others were from as far away as Canada.

Deputies also seized more than $4,000 in cash, and tools allegedly used to commit burglary.

Investigators were able to use a tracking device on a piece of stolen equipment that led them to the items.
