A truck driver for the North Smithfield highway division has been arrested for stealing $1200 snow skis out of someone's pickup truck.

Robert Taylor, 45, of North Smithfield, is accused of taking skis from someone's pick-up truck in the parking lot of Slatersville Plaza on February 8.

A week later, the ski's owner identified the skis at a ski shop, and an investigation revealed that after stealing the skis from the pick-up truck, Taylor then sold them to a co-worker for $300 who in turn brought them to the ski shop for reconditioning.

Taylor will be arraigned next week on misdemeanor larceny charges.
