The arrest of a suspect on a theft charge led Monroe County Sheriff's Department investigators to a stash of more than 700 stolen items hidden at a campsite in a wooded area.
"We haven't come up with a value at this point for all the stuff that was taken," Sheriff Dan Kelley said. "But the biggest items we have are a Polaris ATV and a 1997 Chevy truck. There are all kinds of miscellaneous stuff."
The suspect's name was not released.
Kelly, who said the suspect stashed more than 700 stolen items in the woods, has not been charged with the theft of the goods found in the woods. He was being held on the previous theft charge and on parole warrants out of the state of Missouri where he previously lived.
A GPS system the man is accused of stealing led authorities to the campsite, where they found the rest of the items. Kelley said the thefts date back until at least September.
Anyone who had items stolen in the last few months should contact the sheriff's department to see if their goods were among the things recovered, Kelly said.
He declined to say where the campsite is located.
