Breaking and Entering / Theft

Breaking and Entering / Theft

 

            At approximately 0934 hours on 03/24/17 I was dispatched to 1685 Hempstead 35 North (Rick Evans Grandview Prairie Conservation Education Center) in reference to a breaking or entering.

 

            Upon my arrival, Sgt. Bush made contact with John Sandlin. John stated that he parked his 2010 Dodge Ram truck in the parking lot of the Rick Evans Grandview Prairie Conservation Education Center at approximately 1730 hours on 03/23/17 and returned to at approximately 0845 hours today. He stated that when he returned he found that someone stole a Sears and Roebuck 20 Gauge pump action shot gun out of the back seat of the truck. He stated that the shotgun had a wooden stock with blued barrel and an adjustable choke and was in a leather scabbard. John stated that he does not have a serial number for the gun and does not have a way to get one because it was handed down to him. John also noted that whoever stole the shotgun did not take the bow or other shotgun that was also in the back seat. Bush also noticed that there were two DVD players mounted on the back of the head rest that also were not taken. The incident remains under investigation.
