Lubbock Man Indicted for Theft
On Tuesday (Jan. 12), a grand jury indicted 30-year-old Roy Lee Neal of Lubbock for theft between $2,500 and $30,000.
Officials said Neal was arrested as part of a bait-and-track program when he was found “in possession of stolen wheels and tires."
Neal has priors: a charge of felony theft back in 2011 for stealing more than $20,000 from an elderly man in 2010.
Prosecutors have requested Neal’s probation be revoked after he allegedly tested positive for methamphetamine and cocaine in a drug test and failed to pay restitution to the victim in 2010.
A hearing is scheduled in February to determine if Neal violated terms of his probation.
Neal was not listed in Lubbock County Detention Center jail records as of Tuesday evening.
