LUCEDALE, Miss. (WKRG) — George County sheriff’s investigators say a person broke into a veterinary clinic and stole several fully functional Civil War-era replica guns.

On Friday, Sept. 10, law enforcement responded to a call at George County Veterinary Clinic on Highway 613 in Lucedale for a burglary.
