— Authorities in Grant County found more than $100,000 in stolen property Monday when they searched a house east of Moses Lake.

Four Moses Lake men were arrested in connection with the case, according to the Grant County Sheriff’s Office.

Joel L. Wright, 46, Tate B. Wright, 19, Corey A. Sweet, 40, and Patrick E. Pearson, 41, are being held at the Grant County jail.

A majority of the property found at the house was taken during a break-in on Jan. 20 at National Frozen Foods in Moses Lake, the sheriff’s office said. A utility trailer, two pickup trucks, generators, tires, tools, storage tanks and hydraulic parts were taken.

Some of the other stolen property found may be connected to burglaries in Spokane, Yakima and Lincoln County, the sheriff’s office said.
