Guilford County sheriff's deputies conducted a second search of murder suspect Ted Kimble's business Thursday afternoon, confiscating two large truckloads of building materials they say were stolen.

Kimble is the owner of Lyle's Surplus Building Materials, 1700 W. Lee St. Among the items deputies seized were more than $4,000 worth of cabinets, pressure-treated lumber and a garden tub. Sgt. John Davis said the material was stolen from construction sites throughout Guilford County.

In an earlier search of the business, officials found guns, a silencer, numerous how-to books about avoiding the law and more stolen building supplies that Sheriff BJ Barnes said linked Kimble to a string of burglaries.
Barnes said charges relating to the thefts will be filed against Kimble and others involved in the crime ring as early as next week.

Kimble and his brother, Ronnie Kimble, were charged Tuesday with first-degree murder in the death of Ted Kimble's wife of two years, Patricia Blakley Kimble.

Investigators found the burned body of Patricia Kimble, 28, in the hallway of her Pleasant Garden home Oct. 9, 1995. She had been shot once in the head before the house was set on fire.

The father of the two men, the Rev. Ronnie Kimble, was present during the search and loaned deputies the use of equipment to load the items onto trucks. Davis said the elder Kimble cooperated with officials during the search.
