OXON HILL, Md. — A man is facing charges after an estimated $1 million worth of construction equipment in Prince George’s County, Maryland.

Prince George’s County Police Department said officers conducted a search warrant at the property of Brandyn Green, 38, on June 13. The search warrant was part of an ongoing investigation into stolen construction equipment and other items. Officers reportedly found 13 stolen skid steers, two excavators, multiple trailers and building equipment at Green’s house.

Green was arrested on charges of multiple theft and a theft scheme for $100,000 or higher, WJLA reported. The police department’s Washington Area Vehicle Enforcement Team has two arrest warrants out for him for auto theft-related charges.
