Deputies are at the scene of a raided a burglary stash house in Lincoln County today, where the sheriff said they have discovered about $250,000 in stolen property.

Numerous law enforcement vehicles and officers are on that scene at 100793 S. 3520 Road, which is near Prague.

The search warrant was served Sunday morning and it's been an ongoing, active scene. Deputies expect to be there for a few days, Lincoln County Sheriff Charlie Dougherty said.

A tedious process is underway to go through that home and its outbuildings, where deputies have found every room crammed with stolen property.

“In my 38 years, I've never seen anything like this, “ Dougherty said.

The house was still full Monday, even though Dougherty said several truckloads have already been removed. Some of the property has been identified, with deputies solving numerous burglaries in Lincoln and Pottawatomie Counties, but there is still much to go through.

Numerous stolen appliance, trailers, as well as a Massey-Ferguson tractor stolen from a Shawnee home, as well as John Deere Gator have been found, he said, along with just about any type of household item imaginable. Deputies also found several Purple Hearts and hope to find the Veterans who rightfully own them.

Burglaries from at least four counties are involved in this case, he said, including Lincoln and Pottawatomie Counties, as well as Shawnee and Purcell.

So far, “we've solved 14 cases,” Dougherty said. "We're trying to find all the victims we can."

Several victims of recent home burglaries — including one woman who reported everything was taken from the home, have been on the scene to help identify items, he said. That woman found items stolen from her aunt's home, including some homemade sentimental items that could have never been replaced.

Dougherty said some items have owner names on them which can help, while other items could belong to anyone. Deputies also are going through stolen property reports.

Lots of plastic storage bins full of items are stacked floor to ceiling in some areas of the home, making deputies believes some of the property also could have been taken from storage buildings, Dougherty said.

The sheriff said many of the home burglaries that they've already solved were at residences within two miles of this home, as well as several homes on Moccasin Trail Road.

Pottawatomie County deputies have also been on the scene and confirmed they are able to solve several Pottawatomie County burglaries as well.

Dougherty, who said this home was reportedly empty eight months ago, believes the activity and stolen property has been stashed here for the past 6 to 8 months. No one was home at the time of the raid, but Dougherty said their suspect has allegedly been living in that home.

Any investigation is ongoing.

While this scene is active, anyone who has had a home burglary and is hoping to recover stolen property should call the sheriff's office, 405-258-1191 and leave a contact number for a deputy.
