JPD recovers heirloom items taken in burglary

Jasper police, along with help from the Winston County Sheriff’s Office, recovered a large assortment of personal items and valuable collectibles taken during a burglary at a Jasper home earlier this year. On Jan. 6, someone broke into the home of an elderly Jasper resident and walked away with a large assortment of items that included expensive wedding china, antique furnishings and collectibles from Europe and Asia. Earlier this week, investigators from the Winston County Sheriff’s Office were executing a search warrant at a home in Walker County related to a burglary case in Winston County. Once inside the home, they found the items taken in the Jasper home burglary.
At 6-feet, 9-inches, Jasper, Alabama’s David Kilgore appears better suited to basketball than bass fishing. His victory at the Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Southern Open presented by Allstate was an impressive slam-dunk. Kilgore lead the tournament from start to finish. His three-day tally of 54-pounds, 11 ounces of chunky largemouth and spotted bass earned him $6,741 and a Nitro Z9 powered by a Mercury 225 Pro XS. Even more important is an invitation to compete in the 2015 Bassmaster Classic. Any angler that wins a Bassmaster Open tournament and fishes all three events in that division (North, South or Central) earns a berth in the next Bassmaster Classic. This is the second year in a row that Kilgore has qualified for the Classic via the Bassmaster Opens. Last year he did so by winning a Southern Open at Logan Martin Lake.
