BCSO recovers stolen gunsPublished 4:04pm Thursday, March 20, 2014
An Andalusia man was arrested Wednesday for multiple counts of burglary.
The Butler County Sheriff’s Office arrested Timothy Mark Jackson, 28, and charged him with three counts of burglary related to a string of break-ins in Butler County.
Jackson, who had already been arrested by the Covington County Sheriff’s Office, also confessed to a burglary in Covington County.
“We determined he was our suspect, and we went and picked him up and brought him back here for questioning,” Butler County Sheriff Kenny Harden said. “We interviewed him and he confessed and told us that he broke into houses and looked for guns and televisions. He then told us that he had sold some of the items and where we could find them.”
The BCSO was able to recover three guns that were stolen by Jackson. Harden said deputies recovered a shotgun that was stolen in Butler County and a rifle and a pistol that were stolen in Covington County.
“We’ll return the shotgun to its owner, and return the other two guns to the Covington County Sheriff’s Office,” Harden said.
According to Harden, Jackson was on probation.
“Now he’ll have 12 years plus whatever (time) he gets for these burglaries,” Harden said.
