The DPS got more than it bargained for when they stopped a Chevy Malibu on Saturday.

Saturday afternoon the Texas Department of Public Safety troopers pulled over a Chevy Malibu near Shamrock.  An open-air K-9 search of the vehicle lead to a search.  Inside the trunk side panels troopers found $216,850 worth of stolen jewelry.

The jewelry still had tags with bar codes that revealed the merchandise had been stolen from a Macy’s in Alabama.  The driver of the vehicle was identified as 40-year-old Michael Bourgeois from Los Angeles.

Bourgeois was arrested for possession of stolen property and booked into the Wheeler County Jail.
