Two burglaries and theft of campaign sign kept both the Russellville Police and Logan County Sheriff’s Departments busy this past week.


On Tuesday, April 22, officers responded to a burglary 3rd degree located at 100 North Spring Street. Upon arrival, William Townsend reported he had found a broken window in the rear of his body shop where someone had gained entry into the building.


The case is currently being investigated. Anyone having any information is urged to contact the Russellville Police Department at 270-726-7669.


On Saturday, April 26, officers responded to a burglary 2nd degree when Shannon Duncan reported he was in the process of moving out of Westgate Apartments when his sectional couch was stolen.


The case is currently being investigated. Anyone having any information is urged to contact the Russellville Police Department at 270-726-7669.


On Sunday, April 27, deputies received a complaint of a stolen campaign sign on 79 South (Clarksville Road) in the area of Watermelon Road. During the investigation, deputy Kyler Harvey charged James W. Robertson, 31, of Greenbrier, Tenn. with theft by unlawful taking under $500. The deputy was able to recover the stolen sign.


These signs are very expensive and it is illegal to steal or to have a stolen sign in your possession. Sheriff Wallace Whittaker would like to remind everyone that the charge of theft or the charge of receiving stolen property carries a jail sentence of up to 12 months if convicted, or more depending on the cost of the sign. If a sign is not recovered or is damaged, if convicted, that person is responsible for the cost of replacing that sign.


The Logan County Sheriff’s Department is currently investigating other theft complaints involving campaign signs. If anyone has any information regarding stolen signs, please contact the Logan County Sheriff’s Department at 270-726-4911.
