Local authorities seized stolen items valued at approximately $25,000 from a Witcher Hollow residence last week.
According to Chief Deputy Bryon Satterfield of the Macon County Sheriff’s Department, their office has been investigating thefts on the northern end of the county for the last few weeks.
On December 22, 2020, Macon County detectives arrived at a residence in the Witcher Hollow area to look for possible stolen items.
A search of the residence by detectives Kevin Woodard, Kevin Templeton and Jacob McClard, revealed numerous items that were reported stolen from the Langford and Dotson Rd. areas in northern Macon County.
Sheriff Mark Gammons and deputies also assisted at the scene.
The victims were notified that these items were recovered and identified their property.
The items included two antique bedroom suites, an antique chair, a wooden porch glider, antique glassware, and other various housewares, furniture and tools.
