Stolen Property Recovered During Search Warrant

A joint investigation by the Galena Police Department and Cherokee County Sheriff's Office led Sheriff's Detectives to obtain a search warrant for a rural Galena home on Friday.  During the course of the search, investigators recovered a significant amount of property, including power tools, reported stolen during a mid-October burglary at another residence, just outside of Galena.

"This investigation is a great example of agencies working together, sharing information, bringing positive results to our community, and returning stolen property to victims," stated Cherokee County Sheriff David Groves.

"As the investigation continues, we will be seeking arrest warrants for suspects believed to be involved with this recent criminal activity," concluded Sheriff Groves.
