MIDLAND COUNTY - It's the break Midland County Deputies were hoping for, and as a result they have numerous warrants, and officials say more arrests could be coming soon.

Authorities tell NewsWest Nine, they recovered about $1,300 worth of stolen items taken from the Permian Trucking and Hot Shot Company.

Deputies have they've arrested one adult, but have their sights on other suspects, both adult and juvenile.

As NewsWest 9 first told you back on June 17th, the company was hit with vandalism and the thieves got away with thousands of dollars in stolen property.

The Sheriff's Office didn't go into detail about how they recovered the property recently, but it has led them to numerous juveniles involved.

Sheriff Gary Painter tells NewsWest 9, the suspects will be charged with burglary of a vehicle and engaging in organized criminal activity.

The total value of property stolen that night was about $3,160, and included everything from CB radios to stereos.

Deputies are hoping these arrests could lead them to the other missing items.

The Sheriff's Office continues to work with Midland Police as they hope to close the case in the coming days.
