Authorities with Slildell Police and the Sheriff's Office consider this an active investigation and is active and additional charges are expected.
Large amounts of positively identified stolen property and suspected stolen property have been recovered as part of this investigation.
Some of the recovered property has been returned to victims, but other items are still waiting to be identified.
