3 arrested in large stolen property bust, authorities say

Online meeting to buy stolen items leads to larger find


SAN ANTONIO – Three people were arrested in a felony theft case that led to a large bust.

Police said it started when about $3,000 worth of equipment was stolen from a storage unit at an apartment complex on Babcock Road. Some of the stolen items were listed online.

Detectives arranged to buy some of the items and scheduled a meeting Thursday in the 4500 block of Fredericksburg Road.

Three people showed up with some of the stolen items and were all arrested. Those arrests led police to the 200 block of K Street, where they obtained a search warrant.

It turned out to be a much bigger bust, with police finding $15,000 in stolen fencing and property.
