Since deputies raided a burglary stash house near Prague on Sunday, several burglary victims hopeful to find family heirlooms or valuables continue to go through property found inside that home, where deputies estimate they've recovered about $250,000 in stolen goods. The suspect who was reportedly living in that home is still being sought.

Since deputies raided a burglary stash house near Prague on Sunday, several burglary victims hopeful to find family heirlooms or valuables continue to go through property found inside that home, where deputies estimate they've recovered about $250,000 in stolen goods. The suspect who was reportedly living in that home is still being sought.

The investigation is ongoing in Lincoln County, where deputies have been on the scene since Sunday and expected they would be actively working this search warrant for several days, Lincoln County Sheriff Charlie Dougherty said.

The search for a suspicious vehicle in that area led to discovery of three stolen trailers in the woods and that prompted a search warrant that was served early Sunday at 100793 S. 3520 Road, a few miles north of U.S. 62.

Deputies believe the theft ring and stash house had been operational for about six months and the suspect has been identified by the sheriff as John Robertson, 49, although he has also used alias names. Robertson was reportedly living in that home, Dougherty said.

A lot of the stolen property came from a burglary at a storage facility, which explains why much of the property was in large totes, but victims connected to several burglarized homes within a few miles of the Prague residence, as well as homes on Moccasin Trail Road, have been able to recover some of their property.

“Each tote has got information from a family … we're trying to find all the victims,” Dougherty said Monday as he walked through the maze of stolen goods. “We've recovered everything from flat-bed trailers to a John Deere Gator to homemade dolls that some Grandma made.”

Numerous stolen appliances, trailers, as well as a tractor and brush hog stolen from a Shawnee home, he said, along with just about any type of household item imaginable has been located. Several firearms were found and those owners have been identified, Dougherty said.

Deputies also found several stolen Purple Hearts, a uniform and other military items and hope to find the veterans who rightfully own them so they can be returned.

Burglaries from at least four counties are involved in this case, he said, including Lincoln, Pottawatomie, Seminole and McClain counties, as well as thefts in the cities of Shawnee and Purcell.

Dougherty, who said this home was reportedly empty eight months ago, believes the stolen property has been stashed here for the past six months.

Anyone with information on this case or anyone hoping to recover stolen property should call the sheriff's office, 405-258-1191.
