STOLEN FIREARM RECOVERED, SUSPECTS ARRESTED

Following up on a report taken on 9 Mar 08 regarding a stolen firearm, Sgt. Parks last night arrested and charged three area residents. The gun’s owner, Clyde King, 15943 State Route 555, Cutler stated a .22 caliber Rough Rider handgun, a Ruger .22 caliber cylinder and ammunition were stolen from his gun cabinet sometime since June 2007.

Initially denying involvement, Mr. King’s step-son Bradley Allen Divel, age 19, 2465 Graham Road, Cutler, later confessed he stole the firearm from his step-father’s residence in October of 2007 and kept the firearm hidden. Mr. Divel went on to say he took the firearm on the grounds of Warren High School in February and while in a class gave the firearm to another student he identified as Angelo Vincent Knox, age 19, 3558 School House Road, Little Hocking. In possession of the weapon, Knox stated he wanted to make money to buy jeans so he arranged to sell the firearm to Wesley Dean Burrows, age 20, 1276 Moody Ridge Road, Vincent for around $40.

When interviewed, Burrows revealed the location of the stolen firearm, ammunition and cylinder to Sgt. Parks and admitted purchasing the weapon from Knox for $45 and stated he felt it was a better than a fifty percent chance it was stolen when he bought it. On parole for a previous charge of buying stolen firearms, Burrows was arrested and charged with a fourth degree felony of receiving stolen property.

For his involvement, Divel was charged with third and fifth degree felonies of theft and illegal possession of a weapon in a school zone. Knox, who stated that he did not initially know the firearm was stolen but found out later, was charged with fourth and fifth degree felonies of receiving stolen property and illegal possession of a weapon in a school zone.

All three suspects are incarcerated without bond pending their initial court appearance this afternoon.
