BAKERSFIELD — A Bakersfield man trying to sell a stolen oilfield drill bit to an undercover police officer was arrested on Thursday.

Daniel Ince, 31, of Bakersfield was booked into the Kern County Jail on charges of grand theft and possession of stolen property.

The incident began after Ince contacted U.S. Bit and Tool in Seminole, Okla. and tired to sell them a drill bit that they determined had been stolen from Cesmat Service Company in Bakersfield, CA.,  officials said.
