Norwich police assisted the Glocester, R.I., police in a burglary investigation Sunday, later resulting in the recovery of multiple weapons that were reported stolen.

Early Sunday morning, Glocester police reached out to Norwich police to assist with a burglary investigation in the Glocester area, according to a Norwich Police Department news release.

“Glocester Police Department was actively investigating a burglary from a residence within their jurisdiction,” the release said. An assault-style rifle, compact hunting bow and other valuables were stolen from the residence, it said.

Norwich police, after obtaining search and seizure warrants for the suspect’s home and vehicle, found the assault rifle and hunting bow in question, as well as gun magazines, video game consoles, a laptop and a TV.

The investigation is ongoing, with Norwich and Glocester police working together. Further information was not immediately available.
