Longview Man Admits Burglary

A Longview man is arrested for allegedly stealing more than $10,000 worth of equipment from a local boating company.

38-year old Thomas Parks was arrested and charged with trying to pass thousands of dollars worth of checks at a Longview bank Friday.

Once in custody, police say Parks admitted burglarizing 'Props Plus' back in December.

Reports show Parks showed police where he had hidden the items he had stolen including a trailer and two welding machines.

All of the items have been recovered.

Parks is charged with two counts of forgery and two counts of theft.
