GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

According to court records, 10 people have been indicted in the federal investigation into sales at a Greenville electronics store.

Secret Service agents said authorities in Greenville County were notified in 2017 about a possible fencing operation at Reboot on North Pleasantburg Drive. Agents said the store was reselling items stolen from big-box stores like Lowes and Home Depot.

The store owner, Jonathan Field, and two employees, Michael Lyles and Bryan Schroeder, were indicted by a grand jury on Apr. 11. According to the indictment, Lyles and Schroeder were working under Field's control to purchase stolen items.

Joshua Watson, Jacob Brandt, Kenneth Carnes, Danny Rainey, Larry Sample, Charles Matt and Richard Bolt were also indicted, accused of stealing items like tool sets, computer, security cameras, vacuums and more to sell to Reboot.

The grand jury determined that the suspects must forfeit tens of thousands of dollars worth of currency, gift cards and miscellaneous items.
