WEST POINT, Miss. (WCBI) – West Point Police are working several burglaries and are looking for the public’s help.
Detectives are working a number of cases piled up over the past two weeks and are trying to track down the suspects involved. Police have been working several leads that may lead to arrests very soon. They believe many of the items stolen may have been already sold to people unaware that the items were hot. Some of the items include several different guns,watches and rings. Just a reminder it is a felony crime to knowingly be in possession of stolen items. Police say, you can avoid prosecution simply by coming forward if you believe the items purchased were indeed stolen.
West Point Police Chief Tim Brinkley says, “We already know that much of the stuff has been sold either on the street or to certain individuals. We realy want some of the civilians to come forward if they suspect that they bought something on the street.”
If you have any information about the burglaries or know of the whereabouts of any of the stolen items, you are asked to contact the West Point Police Department immediately at 662-494-1244 or Golden Triangle Crime Stoppers at 1-800-530-7151.
