Nine months after eight guns were stolen from the Nolanville Police Department, the investigation is ongoing. Investigators are still searching for the thief and the weapons.
“We have the serial numbers and they have been entered into the national database, so if they show up anywhere, we will know,” Bell County Sheriff’s Department investigator Justin Kelly said.
The Nolanville Police Station was broken into on Dec. 17, and several firearms were reported stolen. Kelly said the thief broke a window in order to enter the station.
Kelly said the thief attempted to steal nine weapons, a collection of handguns and rifles, and made off with eight. The ninth weapon, a handgun, was recovered at the scene.
The weapons were part of a group that had been seized previously, and had been ordered placed at the police department by a judge, Kelly said.
