MCCRACKEN COUNTY, Ky. - A woman, away on military orders, returned home to find some of her property missing.  Investigators believe her brother was behind it.

Authorities charged Anthony E. Aldrich with two counts of receiving stolen property.

On March 4th, the woman returned home to find two guns missing from her safe.  After some investigation, authorities discovered that Aldrich had allegedly taken the guns, sold the firearms at a gun store and pocketed the $300 he received for them.

Detectives tracked Aldrich to the Hickman County Jail where he was in jail for unrelated burglary charges.  When they tried to question him, he refused to cooperate.

The McCracken County Grand Jury indicted him on March 22nd.

Investigators served Aldrich with the indictment on Wednesday.  He remains in the Hickman County Jail.
