ABC 7 News reported the robbery occurred early Friday morning and that the BSO is still asking the public for help in tracking down the thieves.
“Shotguns, Mosberg style shotguns, mostly used for hunting,” said BSO Sgt. Ben Anderson of the stolen weapons. “Some smaller caliber rifles. We’re not talking about small caliber handguns. We’re talking about weapons used to take down big game, deer and whatnot.”
