    Police say stolen property recovered at a Wichita Falls business leads  them to make an arrest in a local home burglary.
    Earlier this month, we told you officers went to the Gold Exchange pawn shop in the 4000 block of Call Field.
    Officers say they received a tip about the possibility of stolen property in the business or sold to the business.
    They say that property was taken from a home in the 700-block of Peterson Rd.
    Among the items stolen were an antique chest and a harp.
     A suspect in a string of Wichita Falls home burglaries told police he helped 44-year-old Joe Allen Adams II burglarize the home.
    An arrest affidavit states Adams admitted to taking the property so he could resell it at the Gold Exchange store.
    Adams is jailed on a $75-thousand bond.
