UPDATED: Subject arrested on theft of six vehicles

A routine call of a disturbance led to more Saturday in the 1500 block of FM 1807 in Venus.

One Johnson County sheriff's deputy discovered a 1998 Nissan passenger vehicle on FM 157 being operated by Inocencio Martinez, 35, a suspect involved in the disturbance. Duncanville police had reported the vehicle as being stolen.

That led back to the disturbance, where other deputies, Venus police and the Tri-County Auto Theft Task Force found several vehicles in the backyard of the residence. Among those vehicles found to be stolen were a 2005 GMC 1500 pickup, reported by Arlington police; a 2004 Chevy Avalanche, reported by Cedar Hill police; and a 1997 Nissan Frontier, 2005 GMC Yukon and 2005 Cadillac Escalade, all reported by Dallas police.

In all, six stolen vehicles were recovered at a total value of $53,475.

Martinez has been arrested in connection with the auto theft. Martinez faces the third-degree felony charge of theft valued at $30,000 to $150,000.
