DALE, Texas (AP) — The Bastrop County Sheriff's Office says two men are facing theft charges after they stole gravel belonging to the Texas Department of Transportation from a roadside in Dale.

The sheriff's office said Austin residents, 47-year-old Antonio Urquiza and 49-year-old Angel Solis, were arrested Monday night and have been charged with theft of property of more than $500 and less than $1,500.

Authorities say the men stole about 14 yards of gravel valued at more than $900.

The sheriff's office said deputies arrested the men a few hours after a passerby called and said multiple people were loading materials along the side of the road into a dump truck on Texas 21 West in Dale.

It wasn't immediately clear if they have an attorney.
