A Gage County burglary victim followed a thief and led authorities to a farm field two miles northeast of Barneston Sunday, where Shawn Huntington, age 45, was subsequently arrested on theft and drug possession charges among others.

Executing a search of a relative’s home, authorities recovered some three-trailer loads of stolen property, valued at $6,300 that had been taken from at least five recent burglaries under investigation. Tools, perhaps used in the crimes, as well as marijuana and drug paraphernalia were also recovered from Huntington’s vehicle.

He was seen taking items from a residence on south 120th Road, and drove away from the property, which led the victim to follow and confront the man before notifying authorities. A $50,000 appearance bond has been set, with charges of burglary tools possession, theft, theft by receiving stolen property, criminal mischief, possession of drugs and paraphernalia.
