LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- The man arrested for stealing thousands of dollars of lawn equipment from North Oldham High School has an extensive criminal history.

James McGuffin is charged with receiving stolen property.  He's been convicted of theft numerous times before. 

He is accused of hauling the stolen equipment away by also stealing the school's band trailer.  Lawnmowers and ATVs were eventually hauled away from his house in Portland last night.

Police say McGuffin locked himself inside the home and detectives had to knock down the door to arrest him.

His girlfriend, Jennifer Cheatum, is also charged.  During her arraignment it was revealed she admitted to police that her boyfriend stole the machinery to sell it.
