Hopkins County Sheriff’s Investigators with the assistance of Officer Alejandra Castenda, a certified peace officer who current works as a jailer, recovered ten chain saws in Dallas.
The recovery of stolen items from Ag Power and other power saw dealers in the Northeast Texas area has been an ongoing work for the local office. The saws recovered Thursday were in Haltom City, and Balch Springs.
Castenda was instrumental in the recovery according to Hopkins County Sgt. Corley Weatherford, who told KSST News, “Translation was imperative.” Information given the local department led them to the locations. The investigation is ongoing.
