An Aransas Pass man was arrested Monday morning on theft-related charges after the Victoria Police Department recovered multiple items that had been reported stolen.

Shaun Gary Oerlieb, 34, was arrested on suspicion of theft between $2,500 and $30,000, criminal trespassing, unlawful use of a criminal instrument and evading arrest or detention, according to a news release from Officer David Brogger, a spokesman for the Victoria Police Department.

Officers detained Oerlieb inside a fenced in area of Victoria Farm Equipment at 2501 Callis St., where they discovered he had used a truck and trailer reported stolen from Corpus Christi to tow a stolen Husqvarna Zero Turn mower from the business on the previous morning, according to the release.

A Husqvarna Zero Turn mower reported stolen from Victoria Farm Equipment was recovered by the Victoria Police Department. The suspected offender, Shaun Gary Oerlieb, was arrested on multiple charges, including theft between $2,500-$30,000.

A search warrant was issued for Ortlief’s home in San Patricio County after the arrest, where detectives with the police department’s Motor Vehicle Crime Prevention Unit located the stolen mower, a Kubota Zero Turn mower with a missing serial number and recovered a Dodge Challenger and car dolly that had both previously been reported stolen by other agencies, according to the news release.

Oerlieb was arrested a second time in San Patricio County on Tuesday and is expected to face additional charges in Victoria, Brogger said.
