$80,000 worth of stolen property was recovered in Cherokee County Wednesday afternoon near Galena. Deputies executed a search warrant, finding heavy equipment and firearms that had been reported stolen over the past few weeks.
Investigators also found meth and drug paraphernalia.
Cherokee County Sheriff David Groves tells Newstalk KZRG while the property was recovered, the suspect was not there at the time.
“The equipment recovered today is used by hardworking people to provide food and necessities for their families. I’m glad they were able to get their property back and while the suspect was not present during the execution of this search warrant, we anticipate the issuance of an arrest warrant in the coming days.”
