Authorities found the items after issuing a search warrant Thursday for a home in the 4600 block of Etterlee Road in Blythe.

Vernard Bernard Patterson, 54, who lives in the home, was charged with simple battery and a felony charge of theft by receiving stolen property.

Leisey said more than $25,000 in equipment was stolen from the training range Feb. 16 . Authorities are still searching for the remaining items.

The sheriff's office is not disclosing what items were stolen.

As far as what was stolen, it should be a public record if the Sheriff made a report of stolen property.

Sweet Son, nothing is a public record for an ongoing investigation nor should it be unless the Sheriff's Office wants that information released. If public records covered open cases, all kinds of crime, including murder could go unsolved and/or be far more difficult to investigate.

Good job to RCSO for the arrest.
