Thomasville-  Stolen Alabama rifles that would likely have found their way to Thomasville's streets are caught by police.

Twenty one year old Justin Hawkins and 22 year old Larry Ingram both of Dothan Alabama are in the Thomas County jail facing possession of transporting stolen property across the state line, and cocaine and marijuana possession charges. Police seized these eight rifles last week from the trunk of a car along Carrol Street.

"It's always concerning when you're dealing with weapons being brought, because you know they're trying to sell them, and that's another gun on the street that police officers in the community have to worry about," said Captain Troy Rich, Thomasville Police Department.

The firearms have been returned to Alabama law enforcement.
