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.
