LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Texas Department of Public Safety troopers arrested a man accused of using equipment from his employer to make money by insulating deer stands on the side Friday.

The investigation began in February when the owner of Rite Way Insulation told police one of her employees, Justin Bradbury Lovell, 26, of Lufkin, had been using her equipment and her product used to install spray foam insulation to do jobs on the side.

While the officer was on the scene, he reported Lovell admitted he had been doing the jobs on the side.

The arrest affidavit states Lovell went to the Hudson Police Department and detailed each of the jobs he did on the side.

Lovell estimated he had insulated seven deer stands at a total of $5,771.40.

Police obtained a warrant for Lovell's arrest on May 14.

Lovell was booked into the Angelina County Jail on a state-jail felony charge of theft of service between $1,500 and $20,000. He posted a $2,500 bail and was released from the jail Saturday.
