Stolen Guns Found

Firearms appear to be the main motive for several home burglaries in neighboring Geneva County.

Authorities say the thief or thieves had the weapons hidden in a wooded area south of Geneva.

Police Chief Frankie Lindsey says burglars often steal guns because there's an available market for the hot items.

“Investigators were led to a wooded area where the guns were found. We’re in possession of them and other items. We’re trying to tie-up some loose ends and tie-up the case right now," said Chief Lindsey.

Police have made no arrests at this time, but tell News 4 they do have two persons of interest who will be questioned.
