SAINT JO, TX (KAUZ) -

A $200,000 excavator that was stolen in February has been recovered. 

According to the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association, the excavator was stolen from a ranch near Holliday sometime between the evening of Tuesday, February 13 and the morning of Wednesday, February 14. 

TSCRA officials believed the excavator was loaded onto a lowboy trailer when it was stolen. 

In June, the TSCRA Special Ranger assigned to the case received an anonymous tip that led authorities to a remote portion of property south of Saint Jo. 

With the assistance of the Texas Department of Public Safety Aircraft Operations Division, investigators were able to fly over the land and saw an excavator of similar make and model of the stolen one.

The serial number on the excavator was a match, upon further investigation. It was impounded by the Montague County Sheriff's Office until it was returned to its rightful owner following a property hearing.

Authorities are still searching for the people involved in stealing the excavator. Anyone with information can call Special Ranger John Bradshaw at (940) 389-6123.

All information is kept confidential and tips can be made anonymously.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks with Russian President Vladimir Putin during a press conference after their meeting at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki, Finland, Monday, July 16, 2018.

    Standing alongside Putin, Trump steered clear of any confrontation with the Russian, going so far as to question American intelligence and last week's federal indictments that accused 12 Russians of hacking into Democratic email accounts to hurt Hillary Clinton in 2016.
