Cotton County Sheriff's officials rounded up several items worth thousands of dollars.
And we now have a better idea of what those items are.

This apartment complex on Old Burk Road and this motel on Old Iowa Park Road both received an unwelcomed visit Wednesday morning. 
At the motel, Wichita Falls police centered their attention on room number seven.
When no one answered they drew their guns and went inside.
This search was part of a burglary ring investigation by the cotton county sheriff's office in Walters.
According to Cotton County Undersheriff David Johnston, it all started late Tuesday morning with a tip.
Johnston says that tip led them to the Old Burk Road apartment complex and this motel and they called local police and sheriff's officials to help by executing search warrants.
Although our cameras only caught a glimpse of shopping bags Undersheriff Johnston has revealed what was actually found inside both locations.
He says authorities seized several firearms ranging from shotguns to rifles to pistols and several compound bow and arrows.
There was also hunting equipment, power tools, electronics and a few televisions.
Once officers finished they turned the items over to the Cotton County Sheriff's Office.
Undersheriff Johnston says those items are now being processed and the investigation is shifting to finding and arresting those involved in this burglary ring.
While no arrests have been made so far Undersheriff Johnston says they have at least three persons of interest they plan to interview.
And he says arrests could be made early next week.
