After thieves stole an expensive oil field truck and equipment from Prime Energy in Calhoun Monday night, culprits broke into the Frontier Telephone office at Maysel in Clay County Wednesday.

The Clay Communicator said after breaking into every truck in the fenced lot, $200,000+ in small equipment was loaded into a boom truck and a service truck and away they went.

Thursday morning a Clay County deputy was checking out another stolen vehicle parked at Maysel Baptist Church.

Authorities went to Murder Mountain where they located the boom truck and another truck stolen from the Clendenin area.

Some vehicles were located close to a trailer where Murder Mountain resident Richard Cummings used to live.

Clay's Sheriff Holcomb said much of the $200,000 in hand tools, instruments, gages, and saws were recovered from Murder Mountain.
