BEDIAS, Texas (KBTX) -Two people are in custody after a multi-jurisdictional investigation led officials to a home in the Bedias community of Grimes County Thursday.
Investigators with the Grimes County Sheriff’s Office, Walker County Sheriff’s Office, Grimes County Constable Precinct 1, and the Montgomery County Auto Theft Task Force executed a search warrant in the 18000 block of County Road 147 where they found and recovered over $50,000 worth of stolen property.
Officials traced stolen items back to multiple counties including Brazos, Burleson, Grimes, and Walker Counties.
Investigators recovered multiple zero-turn lawn mowers, side by side ATVs, 4 wheelers, utility trailers, cargo trailers, power equipment, lawn equipment, and firearms.
