While working some burglary cases, an investigator with Winston County Sheriff’s Investigator recently recovered what appears to be some very expense silverware that authorities believe may have been stolen out of Walker or Winston County, and now they are trying locate the owner or owners.

“I have been working some burglary cases that occurred in Winston County back in May and during my investigation I recovered two hardwood display cases filled with what looks likes some very expense silverware,” Sgt. Keith Concord said. “The burglaries I’m working occurred at five residence in Winston County, but so far I haven’t been able to connect the silverware to any of my cases.”

Concord said the five residential burglaries that he has been working all occurred on the Winston County side of Smith Lake - two in the Lake Point area, two in the Wilson Bend area and one in the Houston area.

“But I’ve recovered some of the items that were reportedly stolen in those cases in Walker County,” Concord said. “In fact, I was in Carbon Hill working on one of my cases when I recovered the silverware. I don’t believe the silverware is connected to my cases, but I don’t know for sure.”

Concord said the owner(s) of the silverware may not have reported it missing, because they may not even be aware that it is gone.

“We believe one or two of the suspects in my cases may have also been involved in some burglaries in Walker County,” Concord said. “So the silverware may have very well been taken in one of those burglaries. I would just like to return it to its rightful owner.”

If anyone has any questions or information regarding the recovered display cases of silverware, they can contact Sgt. Keith Concord at 205-275-3858 or the Winston County Sheriff’s Office at 205-489-2115.
