Crime Stoppers tip leads to last handgun

A Crime stoppers tip led Sheriff’s detectives this afternoon to the location of the last missing firearm, stolen from a Sheriff’s patrol vehicle this week.

A caller to the Crime Stoppers hot line directed detectives to the house where Kalvin Cowger lives on West Sandy Circle, Big Pine Key. Cowger’s mother gave detectives consent to search for the .45 Caliber Glock handgun and it was located there and recovered.

More charges are pending in the case, but now all the equipment stolen from the patrol vehicle has been recovered.

“We want to thank Crime Stoppers of the Florida Keys for their help with this case. Their commitment to the safety of the community is clear and their partnership with our agency, and other law enforcement agencies is a true asset,” said Colonel Rick Ramsay. “I also want to thank all of the deputies and detectives who literally worked night and day to make sure we recovered all the stolen guns and equipment.”
