With the teamwork of a dive team and a tow truck company, the Wise County Sheriff’s Department was able to pull a gun safe out of Lake Bridgeport shortly before 1 p.m. Wednesday. The gun safe is believed to be part of a theft last month in the Chico area. Yesterday, the dive team located the safe and was able to recover nine guns. U.S. 380 at the bridge was reduced to one lane for a short time as the safe was being lifted out of the water.
