A Loxahatchee Groves man is facing multiple felony counts after law-enforcement officers found five stolen vehicles stored at his home, according to an arrest report.
Eric Hainline, 28, is facing three counts each of larceny between $20,000 and $100,000 and possession of a vehicle with altered numbers, two counts of larceny between $5,000 and $10,000 and one count of motor vehicle theft.
Among the vehicles found on Hainline’s property were a 2016 Ford 350 Lariat valued at $61,510 and a 2015 Ford F250 4X4 with a value of $54,105, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office arrest report said.
The report states that Hainline had four stolen pickups and one Jeep on his property on the 2800 block of B Road, north of Okeechobee Boulevard and east of Seminole Pratt Whitney Road.
The vehicles had been reported stolen to the Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Office and PBSO.
Hainline told PBSO detectives that a friend allowed him to use the 2016 Ford 350 but could not come up with either the friend’s name or his contact information, the report said.
Two stolen ATVs were also found on Hainline’s property, PBSO said. The ATVs had decals with their vehicle-identification numbers removed, but were determined to be stolen.
Hainline was released from the Palm Beach County Jail on Wednesday after posting a $33,000 bond.
State records show that Hainline was sentenced to seven months in prison in February 2009 after being convicted in St. Lucie County of trafficking in stolen property and commercial fraud.
