Covington, La. - Covington Police say they recovered more than $6,000 worth of stolen property.

They say 54-year-old Alton Dennis went on a three month crime spree in the area. They say he stole guns, money, jewelry, computers and various lawn care equipment. Officers say they discovered Dennis living in a shed behind a house.

Authorities say Dennis had already gotten rid of the guns, money, jewelry and computers before they caught up with him.

Currently, Dennis is booked with one count of possession of stolen property. The owners of the rest of the loot would have to come forward and identify their belongings before additional charges could be filed.

Covington Police say some of the property owners might not know they're missing anything.

Authorities advise anyone who notices something missing to call Covington Police Department at 985-867-1200 to make an appointment to view the recovered items.

Victims are asked to bring a receipt with them for the items they wish to claim.
