Police hope they're getting closer to finding everyone responsible for breaking into a Laurel county radio and television station earlier this month.

Police have already made one arrest, but they're releasing very little information so far.

Police also tell the station's owner that they're close to recovering more of the stolen property.

“We did not think really anybody would do anything like that for spite or anything,” Brenda Sivley said.

But they did and now the police are forecasting more arrests in their investigation that involves thousands of dollars in stolen property.

“They told me that they recovered some of my property which they have. I signed a release on the property this morning,” Charles Sivley said.

A half dozen items in all are back in Sivley's possession.

A monitor, connectors, and a toolbox are just some of those stolen items recovered by police.

But there is still forty thousand dollars worth of equipment still missing.

“That's three units there, they cost five thousand three hundred some odd dollars a unit so that's three of them missing,” Charles said.

The gospel radio and TV stations were able to get back on the air shortly after the break-in and Sivley says they will continue to do God's work.

The radio stations tower lights were broken and strobe lights were also taken during the robbery.
