The Morris Police Department has made an arrest in the investigation of a stolen Grundy County squad car and weapons from the vehicle.

On Monday, MPD arrested Michael Naughton, 18, of Morris, for possession of a stolen firearm. That firearm, which had been missing from the squad, was recovered.

The incident happened about 4 a.m. on Oct. 14. Morris police were called to the residence of a Grundy County Sheriff's deputy for a reported burglary, and the deputy's squad car was missing.

The car was found unoccupied in the 500 block of West Illinois Avenue, but several items, including a firearm, were missing.

Police did not release additional information other than the suspect's name, but said the investigation is ongoing.
