Knox County Sheriff's Office and Thomaston Police Department combined resources and executed a search warrant from information obtained during a car stop, according to a press release from Knox County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Tim Carroll.

Deputy Nathaniel Jack of the Knox County Sheriff’s Office arrested a subject following the car stop and observed the person he arrested had a number of women’s rings in his possession, police said, and Deputy Jack took pictures of the items.

Later that day, Thomaston Police Department received a call regarding a burglary at a residence on Erin Street in that town.

A number of rings, along with other items, were stolen, according to police. Through further investigation, the rings were identified by the victim as the ones stolen using the photos Deputy Jack provided, the release states.

Sgt. Tim Hoppe of Thomaston Police Department — working with Lt. Reggie Walker of Knox Sheriff's Office and Sgt. Chris Young of Rockland Police Department — was able to develop probable cause for a search warrant of an apartment in Tenants Harbor, Carroll said. Found in the apartment were items related to the burglary in Thomaston, along with many other items that were seized and believed to be connected with a number of burglaries throughout the county, police said. The value of recovered items is in the thousands of dollars, Carroll said. Through cooperation of the suspect, the investigation is ongoing in hopes to identify and solve more thefts that have occurred statewide, the press release states. Many items have already been identified by some victims, according to police.

No arrests have been made at this time, Carroll said.
