CHEROKEE COUNTY — A Cherokee County man was arrested after officials discovered he was in possession of several stolen items from recent burglaires in the area.
Cherokee County authorities arrested Jody Glenn Smith, 43, of Bullard, on December 2nd.
Investigators executed a search warrant around 8:30pm at a house on the 300 block of Caroline St. in the Shady Brook subdivision near Lake Palestine.
Smith has been charged with having a prohibited weapon, possession of marijuana, and theft of a firearm.
Bonds have not yet been set, and more charges are expected in connection to other burglaries and thefts that took place over the past month.
Investigators are still on scene, and are contacting surrounding counties to see if any missing property can be matched to the items found in the house.
Another search warrant has been executed at another location where stolen property is believed to be stored. No arrested have been made as a result of the second warrant.
