BIG SPRING – A Big Spring man suspected of stealing thousands of dollars worth of stuff, across town and the county, now sits in jail.

Authorities arrested 40-year-old Chris Ruiz on Sunday, not long after a building was burglarized in the county.

Investigators tell NewsWest 9, Ruiz has stole more than $25,000 worth of property.

They say he would go into homes that had unlocked doors and steal stuff or simply take items left in people's yards.

Right now, Ruiz faces a burglary charge but more charges are coming.

We're told a lot of the stolen property has been identified by owners, but not all of it.

If you think some of those items could be yours, call 432-264-2231.

Leave your name and number along with a description of your stolen items.
