The Lee County Sheriff TMs Office confiscated more than $30,000 worth of stolen goods from burglaries that took place over the past two months.
Sheriff TMs deputies gathered lawn mowers, televisions, jewelry, tools, guns, and more from 23-year-old Dustin Wellington.
The burglaries were all in Central Lee County and Sheriff Rachals says with tips from the community his office was able to catch the burglar. I TMm thankful the people of Lee County called and helped us with the investigation. It finally came to a close on Monday afternoon when I actually captured the burglary suspect. He had stolen property in the vehicle from burglaries that morning when I pulled him over says Sheriff Rachals.
Deputies will begin cataloging all of the stolen items Friday and contacting the owners next week.
