NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - Deputies with the Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Office have recovered an airplane reported stolen from a hangar at the Athens Municipal Airport.

Sheriff Thomas Kerss said the Cessna 182 was recovered at a private airstrip on County Road 536. At 6 p.m., it was being flown to the Nacogdoches County airport, where it will stay until the owners come to claim it.

Kerss said deputies have arrested Terry Lynn Boozer, 56, where he will be charged with felony theft, as well as evading arrest, as he tried to run away from deputies during the arrest.

The plane was reported stolen in late January.

Kerss opted not to comment for now on how investigators traced the plane to Boozer.

"In my 30 years of law enforcement, this is the first time we recovered a stolen airplane," Kerss said.

Boozer was also arrested in November in connection to a seizure of a meth lab in Nacogdoches County.
