The Brownsville Police Department received several calls after 8am on Saturday morning stating that different vehicles left unlocked had been rummaged through and disturbed sometime the night before. A total of five vehicles on Dogwood and Washington Streets were included in the reports as well as several items that were discovered missing.
Lt. Jeff Jewell opened an investigation regarding the thefts of items such as: a wallet with cash and debit cards along with a shotgun from a truck on Dogwood St.
Later in the afternoon, Lt. Jewell and Officer Nathan Dennis conducted more patrols in the area and spoke with individuals known to frequent the streets in that area.
Around midnight, while patrolling the area around the Minit Mart, constable Tim Skees along with Officer Dennis received a tip as to the location of the missing shotgun. The gun was then located under a nearby shed by officials at the intersection of Dogwood and Reservoir Streets.
"Thanks to Constable Skees for his help," said Officer Dennis. The investigation is still ongoing and anyone with information or tips is asked to call Edmonson County dispatch at 270-597-2729.
