A man is accused of stealing $192,000 worth of construction equipment from jobsites, reports Komo News.

So far, police have linked Clayton Demming to six cases involving equipment theft.

"It's a headache all around," Gino Bellizzi of BDZ Construction told Komo News. "When you're one piece of equipment short, it's just a hassle trying to rent one or buy one."

According to Komo News, Bellizzi said Deming stole two pieces of equipment from his job sites last month-- workers recovered a John Deere in Woodinville using a GPS device that was already installed on the equipment and two weeks later they found their mini excavator
