Loaded Stolen Gun Found at Mt. Vintage Home

web posted December 7, 2013

MERRIWETHER A stolen Remington 1100 12 gauge shotgun loaded with five rounds of buck shot was found by a Fitzsimmons Road woman when she arrived home Thursday night. The woman saw the gun resting next to a door at the garage and moved it inside the garge and called family members to see if any of them had left the gun at the home. After learning no one at the home left the gun she called the Sheriff's Office.

A deputy arrived and ran the serial number which came back as stolen from a home on Mealing Drive in February of 2010.

The woman stated she ejected two shells from the gun at the time she took it into the garage. Her boyfriend came over and ejected the other three shells from the gun prior to deputies arriving on the scene.

In spite of continuous rain on Thursday, the gun was dry when it was found. The gun and the shotgun shells were seized as evidence. The gun was believed to have been left at the home sometime during the day Thursday.

Investigator's have already identified a suspect in the original burglary, James Brantley, who is currently serving time in Richmond County for unrelated crimes. The Edgefield County Sheriff's Office has placed a "hold" on Brantley for burglary in the first degree and grand larceny in connection to the two burglaries that took place in 2010.

It is unknown who placed the gun at the Mt. Vintage home or why they were there. The case is under active investigation.
