LOVINGTON, N.M. - A Lovington man is behind bars after authorities caught him with thousands of dollars' worth of stolen property.
34-year-old Roy Lane is behind bars for receiving stolen property, transferring a stolen vehicle and several other traffic violations.
His arrest came after several agencies received information that a vehicle and its contents was traveling on a Carlsbad highway with stolen property.
That's when a sheriff's officials spotted a white pickup with a trailer in tow matching the description.
A traffic stop was conducted in the Lovington area and Lane was arrested.
As of Friday, the value of the items recovered totals over $29,000 and officials expect that number to only increase.
