A Texas man has been arrested, accused in a theft from a Sulphur business.

Calcasieu deputies say that on July 3 at around 6:30 a.m. they were dispatched to a business in the 5100 block of Maplewood Drive in Sulphur in reference to a theft. During an investigation, detectives say they observed video surveillance from the business and learned earlier that morning an unknown man had stolen a company truck and trailer containing two zero turn lawn mowers and a welding machine, along with numerous other lawn equipment tools, all totaling over $50,000.

Detectives say the suspect also allegedly damaged the gate outside the business.

31-year-old Brock D. Galloway of Texas was developed as the person responsible for the property damage and theft. On July 8, detectives obtained a warrant for his arrest. He was located on July 18 and arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center.

Galloway was charged with theft of a motor vehicle $5,000 to $25,000; theft over $25,000; and simple criminal property damage $1,000 to $50,000. Judge Clayton Davis set his bond at $32,000.

Detectives say that Galloway confirmed he was responsible for the theft and also provided information that led to the recovery of some of the stolen items.
