EL PASO, Texas -- A man was arrested after he allegedly tried to sell a stolen ATV and landscaping equipment to the person he stole it from, El Paso County Sheriff's deputies said Thursday.
Deputies said 33-year-old Justin Troy Anderson was booked into the El Paso County jail on Tuesday on theft charges. He was being held on $2,500 bond.
A small ATV and landscaping equipment was reported missing from a storage unit on the 13400 block of Boots Green Road in far east El Paso County.
Investigators indicated they were able to find the stolen items on a trading/selling website.
