On or about April 10 the LCSO continued with an investigation from the western part of Livingston County where a residence was burglarized and a gun safe removed from the home. The LCSO and Chula Fire investigated items in Medicine Creek at Liv 216. LCSO and Chula FD worked on recovering the door of a safe and searched for other items. The LCSO returned with the dive team from the Missouri State Highway Patrol. The dive team recovered firearms from the creek which had been stolen from the residence and safe. Additional items and the remainder of the safe were also located through this and additional investigation. The firearms and other evidence were preserved in a manner which has produced results of latent fingerprints for examination of items being dumped in waterways. The LCSO has turned these items over to the MSHP Crime Lab in Jefferson City and are expecting a lab report of their findings in the very near future. The MSHP Dive Team is a free service to our office from the MSHP for criminal investigations.
