STOCKDALE - The Karnes County Sheriff's Office recovered stolen goods valued at $125,000 after busting a major burglary ring across several counties of South Texas.

Two Wilson County men were taken into custody Tuesday in connection with the burglaries. Police said 32-year-old Jarrod James Stewart and 30-year-old Jonathon Wade Andruss were stealing things like firearms, ATVs, generators, and even a large RV.

Deputies began contacting the original owners of the stolen goods to let them know they would be able to pick up their belongings.

Sheriff Villanueva said the victims were very pleased and relieved to hear the good news.

Both men are facing multiple burglary charges.
