After obtaining a search warrant, investigators discovered the stolen goods Friday in tunnels on property in Piedmont, the Greenville Journal reported.
Some of the stolen property included heavy construction equipment, transport trailers, vehicles, power tools and construction material, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
Investigators believe Painter used some of the equipment to dig the tunnels, Sheriff's Office spokesman Lt. Ryan Flood told the Greenville News.
Painter's sister, Breanna Painter, told WSPA her brother had an addiction problem, but the family knew nothing about the tunnels.
