Officers Recover Stolen Gun

Last updated on Thursday, September 15, 2011

(BEDFORD) - Lawrence County Police officers recovered a stolen gun after they went to a home on WPA Road about a domestic fight Wednesday night.

Police said they went to the home after a woman called saying her boyfriend was there to get his belongings and was refusing to leave.

The woman told police she didn't want to give the man his things because he had a gun in a backpack.

The man left before police arrived.

Police took the gun and checked the serial number to find it had been stolen from a home in Bedford.

Bedford Police were notified and the case is under investigation.

While police were at the home they found the woman, Jessica Shipley, was wanted on a warrant in Monroe County for theft. She was arrested.
