NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

Deputies with the Nacogdoches County Sheriff’s Office arrested a 58-year-old Mt. Enterprise man Tuesday in connection to allegations that he engaged in “an ongoing crime spree” in several different counties.

So far, NCSO deputies have recovered $30,000 worth of property stolen from Dallas, Nacogdoches, and Rusk counties. The recovered stolen property includes six flatbed bumper-pull trailers, a horse trailer, five all-terrain vehicles, and one tractor with implements.

Bobby Gene Stein is still being held in the Nacogdoches County jail on several counts of state-jail felony theft. So far, his bail amount has been set at $20,000 for one of the theft charges.

According to a press release, Stein was named as a suspect in the case after law enforcement officers from Shelby and Nacogdoches counties were able to use information from two different videos to identify him.

NCSO investigators found Stein hiding out in a remote part of Rusk County Tuesday. They were also able to find stolen property at a remote part of Rusk County, the press release stated.

The press release stated that NCSO has recovered more than $30,000 worth of stolen property so far, including six flatbed bumper-pull trailers, a horse trailer, five all-terrain vehicles, and a tractor with implements.

At this time, the sheriff’s office is still investigating the theft of two flatbed trailers and a Zero-Turn mower that were stolen in Nacogdoches County.

“We have good information that our suspect took these items, and they were sold in the Lufkin area within the last two weeks,” said Nacogdoches County Sheriff Jason Bridges.

In addition, Stein is believed to have stolen numerous four-wheelers and trailers over the course of the last month in several different counties.

Bridges said if anyone has bought anything from Stein recently, there is a “high probability you are in possession of stolen property.” Anyone who has bought property from Stein is urged to contact his or her local law enforcement.

The case is still under investigation, and more charges could be pending.
