Burglary victims look through stolen items for family mementos

Posted: Updated:

MCMINN COUNTY, TN (WRCB) - Tables of stolen property were on display in McMinn County Friday, giving residents a chance to claim what was taken from them.

All of the items were found when police made a drug bust in Niota.

The woman at the home where the bust happened told investigators she had been trading pills for jewelry and firearms.

The sheriff's office hoped that by returning the jewelry to its owners, residents could get some closure.

"I lost sixty years of memories in probably five minutes," said Debra Marlo, who showed up to look through the stolen items.

"I lost my grandmother's gold watch," she explained, "her wedding ring, engagement ring and antique bracelets and broaches."

No arrests have been made in the thefts.

Detectives say a full-size black pickup truck has been seen in the area of several recent home burglaries.

If you have any information that could help police make an arrest, call the McMinn County Sheriff's Department.
