HENDERSON COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - A Henderson County man, who was arrested in September for a series of ranch burglaries, as well as leading deputies on a chase, has been indicted.

Clifton Denean Dora, 58, of Chandler, was indicted for three counts of theft of property; four counts of burglary, two counts of theft of the firearm, aggravated assault, unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon and prohibited substance in a correction facility and evading arrest.

Dora was arrested after leading a chase in the Sand Flat area where the theft of an ATV and golf cart was reported.

Dora remains in the Henderson County jail with bonds totaling up to $240,500.
