Batavia Police have taken a major step toward cracking a case of stolen building materials.
City Police have recovered what they describe as thousands of dollars worth of stolen property in the Town of Bethany.
Police say the goods were purchased with stolen credit cards through Armor Building Supply in Batavia over a three-month period last year.
Police spokesman Detective Richard Schauf says it's an on-going investigation.
One arrest has been made in connection with the case.
Dustin Hurlburt, a contractor, has been charged with six counts of grand larceny.
Because of the amount stolen and the use of stolen credit cards, the U.S. Secret Service has been brought into the case.
BPD Detective Kevin Czora is the lead local investigator on the case.
