On Friday, April 6, 2016, Iron County Deputies, locals Troopers, along with Ironton and Pilot Knob Police Officers executed search warrants on several locations for stolen property. We decided to initiate an undercover operation back in February of this year after receiving information that several local individuals were breaking into residences, storage sheds, and garages. As a result of the investigation we applied for search warrants we were able to recover a large amount of stolen property from several places. At the present time, we have secured the items and have begun the long process of identifying, labeling, and returning the property to the owners. Investigators will begin contacting people who have reported stolen property for identification. With the large amount of items recovered, we are also making arrangements for anyone who may have had items stolen but not reported to speak with an investigator. The next part of the operation will be investigators applying for arrest warrants on these individuals.
I would like to thank all of our local law enforcement officers and agencies for their support and cooperation. This shows the commitment our law enforcement agencies have to provide our communities with a safe and secure place to live.
