Deputies find more than 200 stolen items in Lexington, Indiana, home
Authorities say the stolen property included power tools, a golf cart, yard equipment --- even a grandfather clock.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A big bust in southern Indiana allegedly uncovered more than 200 items believe to be stolen.
The Jefferson County [Indiana] Sheriff's Office shared an image of some of the stolen goods. They included power tools, a golf cart, yard equipment --- even a grandfather clock -- all believed stolen from the Madison, Indiana, area.
Investigators said the items were found while searching Chadwick Gunter's home in Lexington, Indiana.
"We recovered some other pieces of stolen property that we were able to link back to the property we searched," said Jefferson County Sheriff John Wallace.
Gunter is now facing theft and drug charges.
"I think there's a real good possibility this is going to be connected to multi-county thefts," Wallace said.
Gunter's wife was at the home on Thursday afternoon. She declined to be interviewed but did say she and her husband bought most of the items from an estate sale.
Police are in the process of trying to return the stolen items to their owners by cross referencing serial numbers with the numbers on police reports.
"Quite often, people don't write down their serial numbers, we always encourage them to do that but I've probably violated that myself some times.
If you recognize any of the stolen items, you're urged to call the sheriff's office at (812) 265-2648.
