Victim assistance was instrumental recovering stolen property valued at approximately $15,000 and the apprehension of a suspect.

After finding two trailers at an Old Tasso Road storage facility had been entered, the victim of the theft posted descriptions of the stolen property on Facebook along with an offer of a reward for information. That brought a response from a Cleveland pawnbroker where some of the items were sold.

On Friday, the victim identified the items as belonging to his family, and he contacted the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office.  The list of property that had been taken from the storage trailers between Aug. 13 and the 23 consisted of tools, silver bullion, coins, an air compressor and antiques.  The total value of the items was placed at $30,000.

Using pawn shop records, property crimes detectives identified Gary Wayne Randolph, 54, of 20th Street, as the person who sold those items to the pawn shop. Randolph was arrested and charged with theft over $10,000 and two counts of burglary.

Detectives say what has been recovered thus far represents about half of the loss.
