23-year-old Tommy Lee Morgan was taken into custody for burglary on March 20th. On February 21st, William Kimbrough filed a police report regarding his two shotguns, a Beretta 300 and a Mossberg, being stolen from his detached garage at his residence between February 9th and February 21st. Officers followed up with Kimbrough and were provided serial numbers for the guns, so they checked the local pawn history. Officers learned the Beretta 300 was pawned at Cash America Pawn on North 1st Street on February 17th at 10:14 a.m. by Morgan for $500. Detectives confirmed this after reviewing the pawn store’s surveillance footage. After Kimbrough realized his garage was burglarized, he installed a camera near the back gate in his backyard. Then, on February 24th, at around 3 a.m., Kimbrough’s camera showed Morgan returning, realizing there was a camera, and then turning around and leaving. On March 14th, a warrant was issued for Morgan’s arrest. Morgan was taken into custody on March 20th.
