13 stolen weapons found

MILLEDGEVILLE — At approximately 4 a.m. Wednesday, the Milledgeville Police Department dispatch received an anonymous call about suspicious activity in the area of Reeves Circle and Ford Avenue. The call regarded a suspicious white Ford F-150 pickup truck parked in the front yard at an abandoned house.  

Sgt. Daniel Parker and supporting officers Raymond Borders and Zeke Parrish arrived at the scene and noticed a subject run from the vehicle into the wood line. Officers did a quick visual check of the vehicle for other subjects and found a Ruger M77 rifle standing outside the truck by the passenger door. 

MPD officers noticed a number of firearms, along with several different calibers of ammunitions. They also observed an empty Beretta handgun case in the truck bed. 

Soon after, officers saw an unknown number of subjects with flashlights in the wooded area behind the abandoned house. Thinking the subjects were possibly armed, officers immediately set up a perimeter of the area and notified the Wilkinson County Sheriff's Office K-9 Unit for tracking assistance. No arrests were made.

Police Detective Kim Khan arrived on scene within moments for processing.

Khan executed a search warrant on the vehicle, which resulted in the recovery of 13 firearms ranging from shotguns to rifles. 

“During the course of this investigation, we determined that the vehicle was stolen from the Carrington Woods area and used in the commission of a burglary in the area of Valentine Road. The weapons found by patrol officers were in fact stolen from the residence off Valentine Road,” Maj. Reginald Hill of MPD said.

The Baldwin County Sheriff's Office will handle the stolen weapons investigation, while Khan will investigate the theft of the vehicle, according to Hill.

“Thanks to the observations of those in the community 13 firearms are no longer on the streets of Milledgeville,” Hill said.
