Reward offered for info on recent Marion Co. gun thefts

Posted: Updated:

MARION COUNTY, TN (WRCB) - Marion County detectives are investigating a recent string of gun thefts.

The sheriff's office is hoping its new Crime Stoppers program will help them put the thief or thieves behind bars.

Marion County Sheriff Ronnie "Bo" Burnett says while he's offered rewards on other cases since getting state money for Crime Stoppers a few months ago, nothing has panned out yet. Now he's hoping it will be the ticket to solving a recent string of burglaries.

He says handguns and shotguns have been stolen from at least three homes in the Battle Creek area last few months.

"The thing I want to emphasize is we do have money for Crime Stoppers, so if anybody knows about any of these cases and would like to assist us on that and make some money, we do have money available for this," Sheriff Burnett said.

If you have information on the recent gun thefts or any other crimes in the county, you can leave an anonymous tip by calling the Marion County Sheriff's Office at (423) 942-2525.
