SAGLE, Idaho (AP) — Authorities say a Bonner County road grader stolen in northern Idaho likely on Christmas Day has been located in Montana thanks to an onboard GPS unit.

Bonner County Sheriff's Office Det. Sgt. Gary Johnston tells the Bonner County Daily Bee (http://bit.ly/12ppRTk) in a story on Tuesday that the Caterpillar 140M2 commercial grader was found parked behind a store in Helena.

Police have arrested 62-year-old Dusty A. Hall on suspicion of possession of stolen property.

Johnston says the $150,000 piece of heavy equipment will be examined for damage and then returned to Bonner County to be put back in service.
