After a week-long string of construction burglaries, a Hickory Grove man led detectives through impound lots and neighborhoods in York and Clover to find more than $66,000 of equipment he'd stolen from local businesses.
Deputies arrested Brian Lee Moss, 26, and charged him with eight counts of larceny, five counts of burglary and two counts of breaking and entering. He also broke into a Winnibego and a Peterbilt tractor on one property in Clover at the beginning of the month, police said.
Officers recovered about $2,300 of the stolen equipment from a York impound lot and behind two homes in Clover. Police found Moss after making the connection that he had sold one of the missing welders — valued at $800 — to a local man.
Moss rode with detectives to locate some of the missing goods. He also gave officers consent to search his 1997 Chevrolet pickup truck, where they recovered more items.
According to several reports from the York County Sheriff's Office, Moss has been charged in connection with these June incidents:
Warrants for Moss total $100,400.
