Corsicana — NCSO alerts

victim of theft

Four custom-built, extremely accurate rifles were stolen from a home on North Spikes Road in Retreat, it was reported Monday. Their combined value is estimated at almost $30,000.

“They should be easy to identify,” said Mike Cox, chief deputy for the Navarro County Sheriff’s Office. “If they sell them from one dope dealerl to the next there’s no tracking them. The problem is they’re not going to take (those guns) to a reputable arms dealer and try to sell that. They’ll end up with pennies on the dollar on those.”

The thief or thieves forced entry into the building, probably on Monday. However, police knew about the break-in before the owner. They were already investigating some vehicle burglaries in the area and contacted the owner about a possible break-in at his property, which was confirmed.

“We’re working on the possibility that it may have been associated with some vehicle burglaries, but that’s still under investigation,” Cox said.
