GOBLES (WKZO) -- It’s a happy ending to what was a very sad situation.

Joe Courtney was heartbroken when 2 cameras that contained hundreds of pictures and videos of his son were stolen from his home near Gobles last year and issued an area wide appeal for help to recover them and for the thieves to return them, no questions asked.

His son, Gregory, had died in an auto wreck after surviving a tour of duty in the middle east , and those pictures were all his father had left to remember him. .

Now the cameras have been recovered, and so have the memories, and deputies say the suspected burglar who took them, Lisa Keech is taking a plea deal. It could go badly for her if this case went to trial.

Another woman, Lorrie Jamieson has already been given 180 days for being an accessory after the fact.
