A search warrant served on a Liberty Township home late on Tuesday resulted in three arrests and the recovery of multiple firearms believed to have been stolen in a burglary of a Valparaiso residence earlier in the day, the Porter County Sheriff’s Police is reporting.

According to police, at 6:30 p.m. the Porter County Multi-Enforcement Group (MEG) received information that the stolen firearms were currently cached inside the residence at 1411 Winterpark Drive at the Whispering Sands Mobile Home Community.

Based on that information, MEG secured a search warrant and subsequently recovered the following, police said: four long guns, one handgun, “numerous” rounds of ammunition and knives, several pieces of jewelry, and prescription pills belonging to the victim of the burglary; as well as 100 grams of marijuana.

Charged with burglary and maintaining a common nuisance was Marissa Gammon-Buckley, 18, of 1411 Winter Park Drive.

Charged with burglary and being a felon in possession of a firearm was Zachary Edward Schlyer, 20, of 815 Eastbrook Drive in Valparaiso.

Charged with burglary was Joseph Gonzalez, 18, no address available.

Assisting MEG were PCSP detectives; the Valparaiso Police Department; Porter County SWAT; the DEA Task Force; and ATF.

“This was an excellent example of multiple agencies working together quickly to solve this case, locate stolen property, and keep our community safe,” Sheriff Dave Reynolds said.
