ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany Police investigators have been working the streets to determine how several stolen shotguns and rifles ended up inside a West Alberson Drive home.

Lee County Sheriff's Investigators got a tip that the stolen guns were inside the house at West Alberson and Club Drives. The case was turned over to Albany Police because the home's inside the city limits. Home's owners consented to the search.

"They obtained consent from the home owners or the people living in the home to go in and search. Once inside they discovered several shotguns and several rifle inside an upstair bedroom," said Phyllis Banks-Whitley, Albany Police Media Manager.

Police still haven't determine where the rifles and shotguns may have been stolen from. They're asking anyone with information to contact Crimestoppers at (229)436-TIPS. No one has been been charged in this case.
