Cannon County Sheriff's Officer Doc Smith was dispatched to 1279 Toy Denny Road on March 23 to take a theft report. Upon arrival he spoke with Christy Dawn Jones and her father, Randall Eugene Perry.
Perry stated his son-in-law had broken into his home. Items reported stolen from the residence included two firearms, a rifle and a shotgun, and a yellow chainsaw.
Officer Smith interviewed a neighbor, who stated Troy Gibson came to his residence and sold him a yellow chainsaw for $10.
Total value of the guns and chainsaw is estimated at over $400.
Gibson and Eugenia Keisling have been identified as persons of interest in the case. Both are scheduled to appear in Cannon County General Sessions Court Tuesday on unrelated charges.
