Police: Multiple guns stolen from Columbia gun shop
COLUMBIA - The Columbia Police Department is searching for a suspect accused of stealing "multiple weapons" from a gun shop.
Police said the burglary happened early Friday morning at Powder Horn Guns & Archery.
CPD spokesperson Jeff Pitts said a burglary alarm alerted officers. When they arrived at the store, the entrance had been 'breached' and the suspect had left the scene.
Columbia Police said they could not reveal how many guns were stolen or what kind of guns they were.
The store was closed on Friday as workers cleaned the scene. The owners posted on Facebook saying they would let customers know when the store will be open again.
As customer showed up Friday afternoon, employees told them the store would likely be open Saturday.
Columbia Police said anyone with information should call the Columbia Police Department or CrimeStoppers at 573-875-TIPS.
