MARTIN COUNTY - A man from Mexico is behind bars in Martin County for stealing a high dollar saddle and a utility trailer.

Hector Orozco-Ceja is accused of taking both items at the end of March.

Authorities say Orozco went to a home, asking for work and spotted the saddle, which is worth several thousand dollars.

When he was told there was no work for him to do, he parked in front the house next door to wait for the people to leave.

That's where he saw the utility trailer.

When the family from the first house left, Orozco stole the saddle and trailer.

Sheriff John Woodward tells NewsWest 9, Orozco was arrested on Tuesday and they recovered the saddle.

The utility trailer has not been found.
