They say any publicity is good publicity…and that seems to be the case for the Fairfield Glade Sportsman's Club. Officials say extensive publicity regarding the theft of several items including 10 guns led to the return of the items. Among the guns stolen was a special rifle that was to be used in a youth fundraiser. Cumberland County Sheriff Butch Burgess says the guns were returned by a former athlete in the program who heard the extensive coverage of the theft. The person did not know where the guns came from when he received them. 22 year old Jeremy Wayne Davis of Taylor Street has been arrested in connection with the crime.
