A Columbia County grand jury indicted six men in connection with dozens of stolen televisions and computers being sold from a Martinez Mexican restaurant.

Toribio Marquez, 34, of Devon Road in Grovetown, was the manager of Monterrey's restaurant at 4018 Washington Road. He was indicted on theft by receiving stolen property, according to court documents released Friday.

In a search of the restaurant in late February, authorities recovered dozens of flat-screen televisions and laptop computers stolen from homes in Columbia, Richmond and Jefferson counties.

Daniel Arroyo Lopez, 27, of Springhouse Lane in Augusta, was indicted on criminal attempt to commit theft by receiving.

Four other Augusta men -- Deniro McKeal Wilson, 18, of Overlook Drive; Darren Jayquan Moore, 23, of Lambert Court; Gerald Andrew Moore, 20, of Rome Way; and Ronnie Boozer, 17, of Waterfront Drive -- were charged with burglary, according to the indictment.

Wilson was indicted on seven charges of burglary. Gerald Moore and Boozer face three counts of burglary; and Darrn Moore was indicted on one count.

The grand jury also indicted Wilson, Gerald Moore and Boozer on criminal attempt to commit burglary.

Marquez, Wilson and Boozer were released from the Columbia County Detention Center after posting bond. The Moores are being held on $10,100 bonds, according to jail records. Lopez is being held without bond.
