MOBILE COUNTY, Ala. (WPMI) Deputies in Mobile County helped Washington County officials arrest a man accused of stealing firearms.
Matt Walker was arrested Friday and is charged with five counts of receiving stolen property and five counts of possessing a firearm with an altered serial number.
Earlier this week, Washington County detectives were doing some surveillance in Rochester Place in Mobile. They saw Walker carrying several firearms. Detectives confronted him and were able to determine that the guns were used in a burglary in their county.
Investigators with the Mobile County Sheriff's Office were called in to conduct a search at Walker's home on Jeff Hamilton Road on Valentine's Day. Several items were found that deputies say were used in the burglary. Detectives also recovered a large number of gold and silver coins and more than $27,000.
The case is ongoing.
