Detectives with the Wilson County Sheriff's Office have arrested two people and recovered some stolen property following an intense investigation into a string of burglaries in Southwestern Wilson County.
The Sheriff's Office received several vehicle burglary reports Monday, July 20 in the Chadwick Court and South Lakeview Drive areas.
Among the items reported stolen were handguns and two stainless steel, high-performance boat propellers (valued at $5,500 each).
The Wilson County Balloon and Music Festival, originally scheduled for Labor Day weekend at the Lebanon Municipal Airport, is being moved forward to the spring of 2016. The exact date will be announced in the next few weeks.

Citing declining participation over the past several seasons, Lebanon Parks & Recreation has decided to no longer program tackle youth football in favor of co-ed flag football.
"This is something we've been looking at for a while," said Parks & Recreation Director William Porter. "Our numbers have been going down for the past several years and with the growth of the weekend travel football operation, there hasn't been enough interest for both leagues.
"We had three teams in each of our divisions for the last two seasons, and that's just not enough kids to fill out the rosters."
