ALBANY, GA (WALB) –Crooks continue to go after guns.

A rifle and shotgun were stolen from a Dougherty County home Tuesday afternoon.

A neighbor saw two men running from his house and found another rifle they might have dropped.

This Remington 22 caliber rifle was found behind Hiram Grimes home on Woodridge Court. Police are now investigating to see who owns it.

Tyrell Lawson reported that a rifle and shotgun were stolen from his home on Woodridge Court yesterday. Dougherty County Police Captain Jimmy Sexton said "It's a very scary situation because of the number of guns we have on the streets now, and the fact that people seem to be actually seeking guns."

Police have no suspects in the gun thefts. The recovered rifle is a 1941 Remington 22 caliber. If you have any information about this gun, call the Dougherty County Police at 430-6600.
