NEWBERRY, S.C. (WOLO)— Newberry deputies arrested 55 year-old Ryan Lanard Bonneau. He is accused of  receiving stolen goods, possessing a weapon, and unlawfully carrying a handgun.

The suspect was taken into custody after a concerned citizen reported to deputies their suspicions.

Authorities say the customer was suspicious of the information provided about the item and reached out to the Sheriff’s Office to check on its status. Deputies say they discovered the item was stolen.

Deputies say an undercover operation on Jan. 10 led to the retrieval of the stolen Kubota skid steer and Bonneau’s detainment. His two minor children were with him, say officials. Bonneau was carrying $20,000 in cash and a handgun.

Bonneau’s children were turned over the Department of Social Services for family placement.

He is being detained at the Newberry County Detention Center on a $20,000 cash/surety bond.
