Local law enforcement officials say a search today of a residence in the South Broad Street area will help solve the majority of residential burglaries that have happened recently on Lookout Mountain.
A news release from Chief Randy Bowden of the Lookout Mountain (Tenn.) Police Department and Chief Tom Gann of the Lookout Mountain (Ga.) Police Department said preliminary findings in the wake of the search leads them to the conclusion about resolving most of the burglaries.
They said their departments along with the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office executed the search warrant at the residence where they found illegal drugs as well as suspected stolen property.
The release said there is an ongoing investigation with information to be released as it becomes available.
"We want to personally thank all law enforcement officers for the joint effort in conducting this investigation," the two chiefs said. "Again, this is a good example of what can be accomplished when we work together to combat illegal activity."
