Authorities find over $120,000 in stolen property, close three cases

MCLENNAN COUNTY, TX (KXXV) - UPDATE: On April 30, a McLennan Grand Jury indicted Roy Dennis Conner on three counts of theft of $1,500 or more, but less than $20,000.

Theses charges are related to the stolen golf carts authorities recovered in March.

More than $120,000 in stolen property was found by the McLennan County Sheriff's Office as they wrapped up three separate cases that involved stolen golf carts and stolen jewelry.

One of the cases involved a nanny who stole $13,000 worth of rings, watches and other jewelry, then pawned them at local shops.

Detectives also caught the culprit in a string of golf cart thefts from a Moody golf course.

Most recently, two men were caught who burglarized a house in Gholson and took thousands of dollars worth of property.

Investigators say they hope this news sends a message to all thieves.

 "If you're a bad guy and you break into houses, there's a good chance that McLennan County Sheriff's Office detectives are going to catch you. And not only will they catch you, they will get the property back as well," said Cpt. Bubba Collyer.
