Crimetracker: Deputies: More than $40k worth of stolen equipment found

Deputies are still sifting through items at a Knox County home where several stolen vehicles were found.

It's a neighborhood flooded with heavy traffic - but never any like this.
On Tuesday, deputies swarmed a home in South Knoxville.

The only thing coming and going, tow trucks. One by one -- cars and construction equipment being hauled away.

On Wednesday morning, a similar scene. Now, Gary Steven Valentine is behind bars. Deputies executed a search warrant - finding stolen goods - some with a $40,000 price tag.
