Homicide case leads Missouri deputies to guns
WAYNESVILLE, (AP) - The Pulaski County Sheriff's Office says deputies found roughly 400 guns at a business being searched as part of a homicide investigation.
Deputies say they inspected Hilltop Motors in Waynesville on Friday because of the death of 82-year-old Robert Willhite. The disabled navy veteran died last month after being beaten in his home and robbed of items including guns. Four people were charged in the death.
Authorities say they found at least 40 stolen guns and others that were illegally modified. They say stolen property and a large amount of money were also discovered.
A 49-year-old man was arrested at the scene because of the firearms. They have not released his name.
