Police Say Stolen Grader, Loader Found in Garage

SPRINGVILLE -- Investigators say they found a stolen road grader and loader parked inside a man's garage.

Felony charges are pending against the 37-year-old Springville man after $235,000 worth of equipment was recovered, according to the Motor Vehicle Enforcement Division.

In November, investigators say, the man stole the road grader from a parking lot in Sandy and the loader from a Salt Lake home. The man then filed off the serial numbers and repainted the equipment, hoping to sell it.
