Officials here have recovered more than $500,000 in stolen property after breaking up a burglary ring that operated in three states.

Law enforcement officials said the burglary ring, which was headquartered in the Nacogdoches area, was operated by members of a Hispanic gang. The gang sends out spotters during day to locate unsecured property, then the spotters return in the early morning hours to steal the property, officials said.

Names of suspects have not been released because the investigation is ongoing, officials said.

The gang is not associated with anyone in Panola County, officials said.

Officials said the recovered items were reported stolen from several East Texas counties, the Shreveport area, DeSoto Parish and areas in New Mexico.

To date, about $140,000 of the items reported stolen from Panola County has been recovered, including items reported stolen from a Panola County sheriff’s unit.

Authorities continue to recover stolen property.
