The Florence Police Department charged 24-year-old Chance Crossett with theft, burglary and possession of a firearm.

Police have responded to several vehicle and residential burglaries along County Road 47, Middle Road and Highway 72 in the last couple of weeks. 

They found Crossett when responding to an unoccupied suspicious vehicle near Brookdale Assisted Living. They soon came in contact with Crossett who had a firearm on him, which was stolen in one of the burglaries. 

After a search warrant of Crossett's home in Tuscumbia, police found more evidence that tied Crossett to burglaries in Florence, Lauderdale County, Colbert County, Muscle Shoals and Tuscumbia. They also found more stolen firearms.

Crossett is in the Lauderdale County Detention Center on a $5,500 bond. He has additional charges that are pending.
