Four juveniles and one adult have been charged in connection with the theft of firearms from a Corinth pawn shop.

Investigators were called to Cash Cow Gold and Pawn on North Parkway Monday morning after employees arrived to find the store had been burglarized and around 10 firearms stolen. Corinth Police Department Detective Dell Green said surveillance video showed four individuals burglarizing the store around 3 a.m. that morning.

An employee of the store remembered four juveniles who had come into the store the previous week and a review of that footage led to the identification of the four responsible for the burglary.

Police executed a search warrant on Wednesday at 1802 Proper Street where they arrested two of the juveniles and recovered two of the stolen guns, said Green. Later the same day the two other juveniles were spotted walking on Meigg Street and one was arrested while the other fled from police.

The fleeing suspect was later located and arrested at a 406 Locust Drive residence where three more of the stolen guns were recovered. Timothy Lashawn Thompson, 32, of that address, was arrested and charged with felony trafficking of firearms.

The four juveniles have been charged with burglary through youth court.

Seven of the 10 stolen guns have been recovered. Green said investigators are still looking for three others: a New England .32 caliber revolver, a Karris KG-15 rifle and a Bear Creek BCA-15 rifle.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the three remaining guns is asked to contact the police department at 662-286-3377.

Green said the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms also assisted in the investigation.
