A deputy ran the gun through NCIC but it was not listed as stolen. The gun and ammunition were recovered and placed in an evidence locker.

• A man believes items were stolen from his work truck while it was parked at a home improvement store off St. James Avenue. Stolen items include a laptop, a cell phone, an impact wrench and an 18-volt drill. The victim did not notice the items were missing until the next morning.
