Dougherty County Police seek stolen guns

DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) -

Dougherty County Police are concerned about five shotguns stolen from a home this week.

The guns were taken during a burglary in the 900 block of Tallahassee Road in west Dougherty County Tuesday. Pamela Hopkins said she discovered the break-in about 4 that afternoon. Someone broke in through a rear window and took a 52 inch TV, laptop computer, and four shotguns worth about six thousand dollars. Now the hunt is on to get those guns off the streets.

Dougherty County Police Sgt. Chad Kirkpatrick said "Something we want to let everyone know, if you have firearms in your home record the serial numbers and take photograph of them in case they do get stolen."

Police also urge gun owners to keep them stored in a locked safe to keep them out of the hands of crooks

If you know anything about these five stolen shotguns, call CRIMESTOPPERS at 436-TIPS. You could earn a reward.
