From the Desk of Sheriff Scott Bradley
The Van Buren County is currently investigating a series of burglaries in the Alread area. The investigation started with the original report on February 23, 2013, of an incident that quickly turned into an investigation involving several area juveniles. The investigation has revealed that items were stolen and posted for sale on an online sales listing. To date there has been more than $18,000 in property recovered. The investigation is still on going. All property that has been reported stolen has been recovered. Anyone with a similar incident in the Alread area is asked to report their incident to the Van Buren County Sheriff’s Department for further investigation. Sheriff Scott Bradley would like to add that any items listed for sale that seem to be “too good to be true” probably are just that. Anyone with suspicions on property offered for sale such as this should feel welcome to contact the Sheriffs Office for assistance.
