Detectives of the Macon County Sheriff’s Department solved a theft case this week that involved over $1,000 worth of antiques, which occurred two and half years ago.
Back on December 11, 2011 the Macon County Sheriff’s Department took a burglary report that occurred on the West side of Macon County. Among the items that were stolen were numerous antiques which included hand tools, oil lanterns, glassware, oak barrels and furniture. The retail value of all the items was well over $1,000 dollars.
“MCSD Detectives were working leads on the case which led them to another residence where they were able to locate and recover some of the missing items,” commented Chief Deputy Bryon Satterfield. The victim in the case was notified and came to the location and did positively identify all the items as those being his that were stolen in 2011.
After interviews and gathering additional evidence, a suspect was established in the case, which is two and a half years old. It was determined that the suspect was currently incarcerated in another correctional facility out of Macon County. The Macon County Detectives will pursue criminal indictment on the suspect for aggravated burglary and theft over $1,000 dollars.
Sheriff Gammons states, “There are no cases left uninvestigated. We attempt to follow all leads and investigate all crimes that occur in Macon County, and strive to solve all cases.”
