SPRINGVILLE — Investigators say they found a stolen road grader and loader parked inside a man's garage this week.

Felony charges are pending against the 37-year-old Springville man after the heavy construction equipment — valued at $235,000 — was recovered, according to a statement from the Motor Vehicle Enforcement Division.

In November, investigators say, the man stole the road grader from a parking lot in Sandy and the loader from a Salt Lake home. The man then filed off the serial numbers and repainted the equipment in an effort to sell it, police allege.
