BOWIE CO. (KYTX) – The Bowie County Sheriff's Office has recovered more than $15,000 worth of property after they were notified by a vigilant resale shop owner.
Investigator Will Buttram was notified by the shop owner of possible stolen property that was sold to them. The shop owner provided Investigator Buttram a possible victim's name from the property that was sold.
Investigator Buttram researched and located the victims who checked on their property and found that their house had been emptied while they were gone.
Through a description by the resale shop owner, Investigator Buttram was able to develop a suspect, which ultimately led to another suspect. Late Wednesday night, Investigators Will Buttram, Paula Cochran, and Robby McCarver were able to locate and recover over $15,000 worth of property from the burglary and return it to the victims.
Investigators are currently working on obtaining warrants for the two suspects.
