ITEMS RECOVERED AFTER BURGLARY OF ELDERLY MAN’S HOME

On 30 Dec 08 Deputy Sheriff Lockhart was dispatched to the scene of a burglary at the residence of Frank Chute at 312 Simpson Street in Marietta. Deputy Lockhart’s investigation revealed that approximately $10,000 worth of old and collectible coins, two hand guns and a DVD player were stolen from the residence. Later in the afternoon an employee at a local bank phoned the Sheriff’s Office with information that a male subject cashed in a large quantity of old coins. The male subject, later identified as Kenneth Sparks, age 31, 319 Simpson Street, Marietta, commented to bank employees that he had a lot more old coins and he would be back later to exchange them for cash. Verifying Sparks’ address as being 319 Simpson Street, Deputy Lockhart obtained and executed a search warrant at Sparks’ residence. The resulting search of Sparks’ residence and belongings revealed a large amount of coins inside an ammunition can, a DVD player and a blue safe. The victim’s daughter, who is the property’s caretaker and who reported the burglary, positively identified the seized items as belonging to her father. As a result of his investigation Deputy Lockhart requested a warrant for Mr. Sparks for a second degree felony charge of burglary. Mr. Sparks’ whereabouts are currently unknown.
