HOUSTON, Texas (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A train conductor was arrested in Houston for an unusual crime--he's accused of stealing train horns.
Detectives say he's stolen 53 of them since 2009, and was selling them on eBay.
Some people were buying them to put on their cars, even though they're too loud to be street-legal.
The horns aren't cheap either, as Union Pacific says the thefts cost the company more than $500,000.
The suspect faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
