ATHENS, TX (KLTV) - A Henderson County grand jury has indicted a Nacogdoches man on theft charges in connection with the plane stolen from an Athens hangar in January.

According to the indictment, on January 28 of this year, Terry Lynn Boozer, 56, of Nacogdoches, stole a single engine aircraft, valued at more than $100,000, from a hangar at the Athens Municipal Airport.

An eight-year-old Nacogdoches boy was honored by the Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Office for helping authorities to identify Boozer as the suspect in the plane theft.

Madi Simmons alerted his father when the plane landed on a private airstrip near his home.

A trial date has not yet been set in this case.

Boozer recently pleaded guilty to a federal charge of conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine in Angelina County. He's awaiting sentencing on that charge.
