Houston train horn theft

Posted: Updated:

Houston, TX - A train conductor out of Houston will be facing charges in court, over an unusual crime.

Police say the man stole 53 train horns, costing Union Pacific more than half a million dollars.

Each horn is worth 1,500 dollars and when a train loses its horn, it has to be idled.

The engines then have to be lifted off the tracks and taken in for repairs.

Officials say the conductor was selling the horns on eBay.
