Stolen items may be from someone's hunting lodge

The Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office is trying to track down the owners of stolen property recovered last week. The property includes hunting, fishing and camping equipment, as well as hand and pneumatic tools.

Investigators think the property was taken during one or more burglaries in southwest Sedgwick County last month.

Sgt. Gary Hargus said the stolen property numbers in the "dozens" of items, and includes stoves, heaters, rods and reels, tackle, tackle boxes, bedding, waders and antlers.

The items are consistent with those someone might have kept in a hunting lodge, he said. Some of the stolen items are still in their boxes, Hargus said.

The equipment was discovered following the arrest of four men last week, Capt. Annette Haga said. The men are suspected in a series of battery thefts from farm machinery, semitrucks and earth-moving equipment.

Anyone missing property fitting the description of the recovered items should call 316-660-5300 for more information.
