Authorities in Hockley County have recovered property they say was stolen almost three years ago.
Basic Energy Services reported several items had been stolen back in 2009, totaling $28,000 dollars.
Thanks to tips from the community, the Hockley County Sheriff's Office was able to recover tubing tongs used for drilling back in March, and this week, they say they found additional pieces of property totaling $7,000 dollars.
The Sheriff's Office says they have a suspect in the case and are still investigating.
