FORREST CITY, Ark. (AP) St. Francis County sheriff’s deputies have recovered enough stolen construction equipment to start their own company.

Deputies said they found a $150,000 road grader, a $100,000 backhoe, a tractor trailer and a Kubota utility vehicle hidden at a home near Forrest City. The backhoe, stolen from a road construction site in Collierville, Tenn., had been missing since last month.

The tractor trailer had been stolen from Greene County and the road grader had been taken from Coahoma County, Miss., authorities said.

Deputies said two suspects will be charged in the thefts.

"These are professionals," Detective Larry Hillis said. "They go out and find this stuff, then they make the arrangements to go and pick it up.

"Who in the world would drive around area roads and see a road grader and say, ’I’m going to come back tonight and get it?’"
