Albany -- An Albany business owner turned himself in to Dougherty County Sheriff's Department late Monday afternoon, as he faces ten charges of receiving stolen property.

Sixty-seven-year-old Wayne Rich, known as the Jeep Man, the name of his auto dealership, turned himself into authorities, then was released on nine thousand dollars bond.

Friday Sheriff's Investigators showed dozens of stolen lawn mowers, ATV's, and air conditioners recovered at Rich's business or homes in Dougherty County and Crisp County. Investigators say Rich bought the big ticket items, knowing they were stolen.

Now Investigators are hoping to use Rich's arrest to track down the thieves who stole the property. Captain Craig Dodd of the Dougherty County Sheriff's Office said, "If we get a good fence, or someone buying lots of stolen property, they generally are buying it from several different people. And they can give the names of these several different people."

 Sheriff's Investigators have not made any other arrests in this case.
