SELIGMAN - Two men were arrested and charged with theft Friday after deputies investigating stolen ranch property discovered it was at their trailer, a sheriff's spokesman said.

Jason Heinze, 28, and Ryan Garcia, 28, are accused of stealing electric conduit, a utility trailer, and various items of tack as well as an antique handmade quilt, said Dwight D'Evelyn, YCSO spokesman.

Several cowboys in the Bridge Canyon Estates area saw a man they believed was Heinze carrying off conduit and wire toward "a trailer known for suspicious activity," D'Evelyn said. While deputies were checking on that, they got a call from another rancher reporting that a 2009 utility trailer had been stolen the previous day.

Deputies contacted Heinze, and while there, saw the utility trailer hidden in a makeshift three-wall shelter, D'Evelyn said.

Heinze had allegedly taken a large junction box and other electrical equipment from the first ranch owner's well site, D'Evelyn said, and the trailer the second rancher reported stolen had contained many smaller items, such a saddles, tack, shoeing supplies, tools, and the quilt.

Deputies located the items in various places around the suspect's property, D'Evelyn said, adding that the total value of the recovered property is in excess of $10,000.

While they were investigating, Garcia arrived, and because deputies had found stolen property in his room, he was arrested as well.

They were both booked into the Camp Verde jail. Garcia was charged with theft-control of stolen property and is being held on a $4,000 bond. Heinze was charged with three counts of felony theft and is being held on a $10,000 bond.
