— A Wendell man is facing charges related to stolen lawn care equipment.

Danny Thomas Goldston Jr., 22, of 900 Wickett Circle, was arrested Monday after a deputy pulled over the U-Haul he was driving on New Hill Holleman Road.

The deputy stopped Goldston for a routine traffic stop and realized he was wanted by authorities.

Authorities said Goldston is believed to have stolen a utility trailer and two lawn mowers from a home on Weston Road in Garner.

The reported stolen items have been returned to the owner.

Goldston was being held in the Wake County Jail under a $140,000 bond.

Authorities said Goldston could be responsible for other similar larcenies in the area.  The investigation is ongoing.
