SPRINGFIELD, OR (AP) -

An Oregon man with a lengthy rap sheet faces charges of stealing equipment from the Bureau of Land Management to settle a debt.

The Register-Guard reports that court documents say 45-year-old Larry Alan Larsen of Springfield gave methamphetamine and a tractor stolen from a BLM maintenance yard to a Josephine County resident.

Larsen was released from prison in early 2014.

Authorities say he stole a Ford truck from an Albany auto dealership and drove it through a fence at the BLM property in April.

The charging documents say Larsen conspired with four other people to carry out the theft. He is the only one being held in jail because he was indicted by a federal grand jury on a charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm.
